Undergraduate Programs

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Communication | Minor in Communication

Communication Major

Since Fall 2011, undergraduates in the Department of Communication learn in one of the nation’s most exciting and innovative communication programs, with communication majors taking two year-long courses devoted to core communication competencies and more specialized topics.  At a time of great change in communication professions, our distinctive, integrated curriculum discourages specialization in technologies and professional practices that quickly become obsolete. Instead, communication students are exposed to ideas and develop proficiencies that will sustain them for a lifetime. 

The department’s curriculum is integrated, covering the entire range of communication topics:

- Public speaking - Journalism - Organizational communication

- New and emerging media - Public relations - Convergence of media forms

- Public opinion - Social movements - Physician/patient communication

- Digital and social media

In this department, students become communication experts who write beautifully, speak eloquently, think critically, and research effectively.  Our students and faculty understand communication as a liberal art.
