The Bachelor of Arts in Communication degree maintains the traditional study of communication as a liberal art. Students may take courses in rhetoric, interpersonal and intercultural communication, organizational communication, and more - as well as our journalism, public relations and emerging technology areas.
Because the program offers greater flexibility than the Bachelor of Science degree programs (40 communication requirements for the B.A. as opposed to 56 or 59 in the B.S. programs), students often choose this program if they are interested in pursuing graduate studies, if they would like to complete a second undergraduate major, or if they would like to pursue coursework in a variety of communication disciplines.
The program consists of 40 program credit hours, including core communication courses and electives of the students' choosing.
