The starting point of success — for any career — begins with effective communication.

With a bachelor of arts in communication, you’ll gain a foundation in the full range of communication forms. We’ll present the history and technologies of communication contexts. You’ll learn research methods as well as examine the pertinent legal, ethical and cultural issues that arise in various media forms. And you’ll have the option to choose from two tracks — visual and media studies, or interpersonal and intercultural communication.

I enjoy interpersonal relations, so communication seemed to be the perfect field to focus on. I look forward to exploring possibilities within the entertainment industry.
