Computer Policy

The Department of Communication regards the computer as a tool integral to the success of students in their professional development.  It is required that all students purchase a laptop computer and software to meet the department guidelines.  Because computer technology is continually changing, a revised policy is drafted in the fall semester.  A list of software is available in the department.  Specific reuirements change so it is important to make sure the software listed is compatible with the laptop you choose to purchase.  Use of the computer in the curriculum varies by course.
