As a communication major, you’ll focuses on merging the traditional studies of mass communication with today’s developing media technology. The skills you gain with this degree will keep you on top of those trends, and with a unique ability to guide the integration of future media technologies, too.
As a student in the B.A. in communication program, you can master tons of concepts, including topics in persuasion, investigation and social media. Or, take a more technical route and study development and delivery of all kinds of internet-based messages, as well as traditional print, radio and TV.
You’ll learn from our credentialed professors and industry experts. You’ll manage theory and fundamentals while working hands-on with our top-level technology. Plus, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to develop your portfolio even further with our on-campus student productions (Knight Radio, iPulse TV and iPulse newspaper). Or, snag a chance to volunteer or intern with one of our local, highly respected media outlets.
