Student Web Based Portfolios

All Monmouth Communication majors have a powerful professional location on the world wide web.  Beginning with the Class of 2004 the Department of Communication Studies has required all our majors to construct an electronic, web-based portfolio containing selected materials highlighting their best work and illustrating their communication related skills and knowledge. 

Students use their portfolios in a variety of ways:  as a professional portfolio in their job search, in support of their applications to graduate school, to show friends and family something of their college experience, and to demonstrate to the faculty of the department how they have met the goals we have for our graduating majors to achieve.  While students are provided a basic template for beginning their portfolios during the junior year, the content and much of the design of the portfolio is the work of the individual COMM major.  In an era in which employers and others can easily use the web to check an individual's background, having a COMM Web Based Portfolio as the first item to appear in a search of the person's name can give COMM majors a powerful and positive "web presence."

The department uses student portfolios as way to assess how well we are accomplishing our mission:

  • to produce undergraduates who are articulate skillful communicators who can construct effective professional and artistic messages,
  • who understand the theory and research of their chosen areas of interest in Communication,
  • who can think broadly and critically about communication knowledge and practices, and
  • who are able to apply their skills and knowledge to both personal and professional life.
