Communication (B.A.)

Overview

EDU 4Our communication majors receive quality instruction in both the scientific and artistic foundations of communication as well as in the application of these theories within a number of specific contexts. Our courses emphasize interpersonal interaction and human relationships, organizational and institutional communication, public discourse and mass communication.

Our students choose courses and areas of specialization that can lead to careers in such fields as media relations, marketing, journalism, human resources, politics and government. We help our students take advantage of the many internship and field-based opportunities available in the D.C. area’s local television stations, public relations firms, lobbying groups and political offices. Our program also prepares our majors to pursue advanced studies for a variety of careers, including media relations, marketing, journalism, and publishing.
