Letter from the Chair

Dear Students and Parents:

SWOSU’s communication and theatre programs are part of the Department of Art, Communication and Theatre. We are one of the largest and most visible departments on the campus of Southwestern Oklahoma State University.

We have innovative faculty members who encourage student growth in the expanding fields of communication and theatre. Our students have opportunities for involvement in student publications, student broadcast productions and stage productions.

Students are directed within the Communication Arts degree to an emphasis in one of three areas: 

  • Theatre
  • Mass communication
  • Speech communication

Whether you choose to be involved on or off stage, work on the staff of our award winning newspaper or sharpen your overall communication skills, SWOSU has a place for you. With small faculty-to-student ratios and hands-on experience, our classes will help equip you for numerous jobs in the communication field.

Any of the faculty would love to visit with you. Be sure to check out the scholarships available for incoming freshman and transfer students. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to e-mail me at or call 580.774.3080. I look forward to getting to know you.


Dr. Robin Jones
