The Department of Communication Studies offers a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies in two major areas of concentration: Relational Communication and Public Communication.
Students of Relational Communication study the different ways individuals, small groups, and organizations exchange messages to achieve shared meaning. These skills that result from such studies are crucial in a wide range of professions, including careers in business, nursing, counseling, psychology, and social work.
Students of Public Communication study processes and types of persuasion that impact political communities, from ethical argumentation to deceitful propaganda. The persuasive skills that result from such studies are also crucial in a wide range of professions, from careers in politics and law to careers in journalism and public policy.
Students in Communication Studies join the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs, which focuses on public policy, criminal justice, social work, journalism and media studies, and, of course, central to them all, communication studies. This means you will enjoy a huge range of internship opportunities, including those provided by local non-profit organizations, national and state political offices, and international businesses.
