Dr. Holly Kruse, Associate Professor

“Students are able to get a really personal experience in the Communications department. They have several opportunities to learn both theory and practical application in their classes and through internships at a variety of organizations. The faculty are available and committed to student success, both because of the size of the department and the nature of the people in it. I get good feedback from students after they’ve graduated that what they learned in the Communications department helped prepare them for their real-world experience.”
