The Department of Communication offers a B.A. or B.S. in Communication with four emphases: Strategic Communication (public relations, advertising, integrated marketing); Journalism (digital, broadcast, print); Communication Studies; or Science, Health, Environmental, and Risk Communication. Regardless of your emphasis, a major in communication will provide you with knowledge on ethical communication, persuasion,social influence and social responsibility. Paired with improved skills in writing and speaking, you will be highly competitive in the job market.
Many students also look at the Communication Department to complement another major. Business, Sociology, Economics, and even Music majors often find a home in the Communication Department. These students look to supplement their education with a degree in Communication, leaving the U of U with a more complete set of skills.
