The Communication and Journalism Department (CJN) helps students master the theory, practice, and art of communication.

At Suffolk, you're right in the middle of a dynamic tech and media metropolis. What better place to launch your communications career? Our program filters the timeless basics of storytelling through the lens of social media and digital communication, helmed by top-notch faculty and coveted internship opportunities.

Experienced Faculty

Our faculty members are game-changers. You might see them on TV, in the movies, or quoted in the newspaper. Why does this matter? In addition to facilitating jobs post-graduation, they can blend theory with real-world knowledge. Our faculty also serve on the board of major national academic organizations, including the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, the National Forensic Association, and the National Communication Association. When they speak, the world listens.
