Mission Statement

The mission of the Oklahoma Panhandle State Department of Communications is to provide post-secondary education in English to the student population of OPSU. The English faculty of the Communications Department accomplishes this through courses and other opportunities in English language, literature, writing, analysis, grammar, and critical thought. The department supports a diverse, multi-ethnic, and multi-cultural outlook on English and its related fields and seeks to bridge the perceived gap between English’s status as an art and as a useful, multidisciplinary skillset. The department preserves the professional and educational growth of our students, our faculty, and the university at large while upholding the standards and practices of Compositional and Literary theories, pedagogical methods, and practical application.
