Welcome from the Dean

Welcome to the official website of the Moody College of Communication at The University of Texas at Austin. We are one of the most comprehensive colleges of communication in the world and our diverse programs of study are all highly ranked and respected.

The Moody College includes five departments and schools in the areas of advertising and public relations, communication sciences and disorders, communication studies, journalism, and radio-television-film. Each program has outstanding faculty who are among the leaders in their respective fields, dedicated staff who help our programs run effectively and efficiently, and talented and diverse students representing all areas of communication.  Another strength of the Moody College is our numerous cutting-edge centers, institutes, labs, and programs that span issues ranging from health communication to video game development to stuttering. In addition, we are the proud home of two public radio stations, KUT and KUTX, and Texas Student Media, which includes The Daily Texan and four other student-led media outlets. Taken together, the Moody College offers a unique, convergent experience where students, faculty, communities, and industry professionals can work together on theory-driven research, applied learning experiences, and real-world communication challenges. 

The Moody College is located in Austin, Texas, which is recognized as one of the best places to live in the United States. Austin features a booming economy and a vibrant culture, grounded in creativity and innovation that directly contributes to the experience of our students and the success of our College. 

I encourage you to explore our website and social media channels to learn more about the incredible people and programs at the Moody College and to come visit us here in Austin. We hope to see you soon!
