Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Communication Studies, BA

Communication is all around us—everything from our computer screens to our cereal boxes contains messages designed to influence our behavior. In the 21st century, your understanding of communication and its complexities can empower you, give you life skills, and help you to understand our world. Our Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies program is divided into two areas of concentration: public/professional studies and media studies.

The Public and Professional Studies program is geared for those interested in careers in organizational communication, law, politics, government, labor unions, human relations, corporate-government relations, and fund-raising. The Media Studies program emphasizes the fields of communication as they apply to mass media. The program qualifies graduates for entry-level positions in broadcasting, advertising, sales, marketing, politics, and public relations.
