Northwestern School of Communication


"Theatre and musical theatre here, as rigorous as it is, never tries to box you in. They don’t try to create your 'type.' You have so much room to explore."
–  Ryan Foreman, Theatre Major with Musical Theatre Certificate and Sociology Minor
"It’s an amazing thing to have a school that has so much intellectual curiosity in the classroom and so much passion about things that are being done outside of the classroom. "
–  Jean Sanders, Communication Studies Major with the Integrated Marketing Communications Certificate
"Northwestern’s art scene completely drew me here. The character of Northwestern is that everyone builds you up, rather than tears you down. Coming from a competitive high school, I was looking for that."
–  Melissa Lewyn, Performance Studies Major with a Political Science Minor
"Each freshman in the Communication Sciences major is placed in a lab despite lacking background experience. It’s a great way to get freshman started thinking about whether research is something they’d like to do in the future."
–  Olivia Zimmerman, Communication Sciences and Disorders Major
"On Broadway, Northwestern is one of the most represented communities on stage and behind the scenes. "
–  Seth Humerick, Theatre and Psychology Double Major
"Most schools that are incredibly gifted in the arts are not up to par with the academic standard of Northwestern…Northwestern was really different in the sense that I could be taking two entirely different subjects. Not only was it allowed, it was encouraged. "
–  Jaclyn Tepper, Dance and Political Science Double Minor
