“Students choose the Fine Arts program because of our outstanding balance of real-world production with a liberal arts education.

About the Department

The Department of Communications at Rogers State University explores the role of information in our lives, including the technology required to deliver it. A communications degree helps prepare students to be better communicators in an increasingly information-driven world.

Why Choose Communications at RSU?

More students than ever are choosing to study Communications at RSU. A record 120 majors were enrolled in 2015-16, and there has been a 42% increase in student credit-hours since 2012.

RSU’s broadcast studios are superior for a regional university. RSU Radio (KRSC-FM) is a full-power radio station that includes six audio studios, a state-of-the art transmitter, world-wide streaming and a brand-new music-tracking system.

The 100-seat performance studio includes full lighting and sound, a switcher and three-camera operation, and a fiber-optic connection to RSU Public TV (KRSC-TV). RSU Public TV (KRSC-TV) is the state’s only full-power television station licensed to a public university and produces special interest local programming, children’s programs and documentary features.
