In brief: Yes They Can
According to the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders (dsm-iv-tr), to be diagnosed with schizophrenia two or more of the following symptoms must be present: delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, grossly disorganized behavior, and negative symptoms such as a blunted affect or avolution.
So the answer to your question is yes. Other criteria exist for definitive diagnosis.
