B.A. in Communication Studies

T. Hoang, PhD, Coordinator

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, click on the degree worksheet, or check the catalog for an exact list of all requirements, including acceptable courses in other disciplines. Click on the links below to learn more about the COMM courses offered in each concentration.

B.A. in Communications Studies Concentrations

There are also specific communication courses for students interested in the fields of Education and Public Relations.

Required courses in all concentrations

  • ENG 3302 Business and Technical Report Writing (W course)
  • COMM 3314 Research in Communication Studies (S course)
  • COMM 3320 Communication Theory (W course)
  • COMM 4098 Portfolio (enrollment in final term, required for graduation)

Field Experience
We encourage communication majors and minors to complete an internship (COMM 4380 Field Experience) in order to receive course credit for attaining career experience. Our research shows that communication students are offered more professional opportunities when they participate in internships.
