This page contains information about the Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies in the department of Arts & Humanities at the University of Houston Downtown.
Students who study communication focus on messages and the way they impact interpersonal, corporate, medical, and public contexts. Our students learn about aspects of the process so that they can better understand communication problems, create effective messages, build satisfying relationships, and produce balanced teams.
Consider adding communication (COMM) courses to your existing program to increase career marketability and job advancement. Or, major in one of the Communication Studies concentrations and earn a powerful Bachelor’s Degree (B.A.) in Communication Studies that can open a variety of doors in communication-related careers. Additionally, a B.A. in Communication Studies from UHD will prepare you for graduate programs. See a CHSS advisor, or check the catalog for an exact list of all requirements, including acceptable courses in other disciplines.
