Communication Studies

Bachelor of Arts


Lifelong skills such as speaking, working in groups, working with new media, organization, critical thinking, and writing form the foundation of the Communication Studies program. Classroom and on-the-job internship experiences prepare students for thoughtful and informed entry into countless career choices. The Communication Studies major is based on research data which indicates that employers are interested in potential employees with skills in oral communication, listening, writing, interpersonal communication, interviewing and small group communication, and who have some career training and orientation.
