Historical Note

The College of Communication Arts was created in 1955 and had journalism and speech departments. Before the creation of the college, journalism was offered in the School of Business and Public Service, and speech classes were offered in the School of Science and Arts. In 1960 the Advertising Department was added as well as Department of Television, Radio and Film. In 1976 the college became known as the College of Communication Arts and Sciences.
