About the Moody College


At Moody College, we are converging worlds, creating futures

Communication is our most fundamental skill. It is humanity’s root behavior, a connective fiber that weaves relationships, binds organizations and unites cultures.

Before the turn of the 20th century, The University of Texas at Austin made the commitment to examine and practice communication as the vital force it is. At every turn, every shift in media, the Moody College of Communication has loomed large as a pioneer, as a producer of confident, prepared thinkers and leaders.

Today, the power of Moody College is in its collective community of doers. Together, we push forward, and together, we pursue the bold visions and brilliant solutions that influence how the world connects.


The mission at the Moody College of Communication at The University of Texas at Austin is to advance and enhance society through the study and practice of human communication.


We believe that embracing diversity, within our faculty, staff, students, and curricula, creates a beneficial atmosphere for teaching, learning and inquiry.


It started with the core belief that communication is the base of democracy, the driver of commerce, the stimulus between society and culture. And then came a radio station, a TV signal and eventually a speech and hearing clinic.


Serving nearly 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students, Moody College consistently stands out and is recognized for teaching excellence, creative work and research.


Moody College is proud to recognize faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends for embodying the values of our college through work and service.
