B.A. in Communication – Communication Studies Cluster

About the Program

Communication is everywhere, and in this rapidly changing global environment, we need ethical, persuasive, bold, diverse, and critical communicators who can wear many hats and are ready to help change the world. The Communication Studies cluster offers a well-rounded, flexible curriculum that teaches you to evaluate, design, integrate, present, and implement messages in order to solve problems in the real world. You will develop skills in speaking, writing, persuasion, performance, public advocacy, and digital storytelling while exploring electives in public relations, journalism, and media studies and production.

The jobs of today and tomorrow need people who can think creatively, work collaboratively, and argue persuasively. The Communication Studies curriculum prepares you to meet these challenges anywhere your interests take you.

Student Outcomes

You will gain empowering leadership and relationship-building skills that can apply to management, leadership, media, human resources, and research jobs in nonprofit, government, education, and corporate settings.
