This article focuses on the College of Communication at Ohio University. The College of Communication began in 1968 when Ohio University united a School of Journalism with a School of Interpersonal Communication, a School of Radio and Television, a School of Speech Pathology and Audiology and a Telecommunications Center. Being organized into a College of Communication with Directors of Schools brings certain advantages, including at promotion and tenure time, the faculty in the school make the primary decision, a professional orientation encourages support from outside constituencies and internship programs in every School across the College provide job opportunities and valuable experience for students among others.
