Communication Graduate Student Experiences

Communication Alumni

Myles Smith, MA

"I was able to take both traditional and online classes to finish my degree. The flexibility of online Communication classes gave me the ability to complete coursework at a schedule better fit for my life. The interactive discussion boards made the course feel as if I were still sitting in a classroom. Online classes also mean you don't have to wear pants to class."

"As an international student, this was a life changing experience for me as I was able to share my ideas and research findings with other intellectuals, while connecting with some of the finest people in academia. The Department of Communication at West Texas A&M University I believe is a grooming ground that makes people into exceptional individuals and I am really glad that I get to learn here."
