Communication is a diverse discipline and offers a variety of training to prepare students for their careers. Students are able to focus on technical skills along with theoretically geared courses to develop a comprehensive portfolio to market themselves to industry. Students are encouraged to personalize their curricular choices to help meet professional/personal goals. For example, students often take elective courses that are outside of their specific sequence to develop additional skills to be able to access different careers.
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.
The Department of Communication offers a B.A. or B.S. in Communication. Learn more about our program.
Major information for current students. The official degree is a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Communication.
