Course Descriptions

Students have a variety of Communication classes to choose from, each designed by our world-class faculty to dive deep into the intricacies of a complex field. Completing the COMM major requirements provides our graduates with a well-rounded knowledge of Communication strategies, research, theories, and practical tactics which they will use daily after crossing the Cistern at graduation. Completing the COMM minor requirements pairs a well-rounded basis of Communication with any other selected major(s) at the College.

General information on the complete list of COMM courses (including descriptions, credit hours, course frequency, and repeatability) can be found in the College of Charleston's online catalog.
