Communication Studies Major

Department

Major Requirements

As one of the original seven liberal arts, the study of communication is over 2500 years old. Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies commit to a culturally significant and vital education. As a foundation to all other academic fields, the study of oral and written communication emphasizes critical thinking and writing. The Communication Studies major serves students and their communities by exploring the ways in which individuals create, maintain, and alter their identities in artistic, face-to-face, and mediated ways. Because of its historical and philosophical underpinnings, Communication Studies complements all other academic programs.
