Program Description

The Bachelor of Arts in communication is a broad, liberal arts experience that also provides an introduction to major aspects of communication theory and practice. Students pursuing the BA in communication are required to complete 33 hours of communication coursework, including 18 hours of communication core classes, and 15 hours in a concentration. Students completing a BA also are required to take 12 hours in a second program of study.

What can you do with this degree?

The Critical & Cultural Communication concentration prepares students for careers in governmental agencies, foundations, nonprofit organizations, and public advocacy groups. This concentration is also a good option for those considering graduate or professional school. Dealing primarily with the rhetorical or persuasive interpretation of communication in political, societal, and cultural contexts, this concentration promotes critical reflection on the requirements of a more democratic culture by giving attention to subjects such as, but not limited to, class, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, the public sphere and politics.
