BA in Communication Studies

Communication Studies (CS) focuses on how people use messages to generate meaning through the use of channels (e.g., nonverbal, verbal, visual), media (e.g., print, television, computers), and contexts. Reflecting these contexts, students can choose between four concentrations:

  • Interpersonal and Group Communication
  • Intercultural and International Communication
  • Rhetoric and Public Advocacy
