B.A. in Communication Studies
Communication Studies (CS) focuses on how people use messages to generate meaning through the use of channels (e.g., nonverbal, verbal, visual), media (e.g., print, television, computers), and contexts. Reflecting these contexts, students can choose between four concentrations:
- Interpersonal and Group Communication
- Intercultural and International Communication
- Rhetoric and Public Advocacy

Declaring Your Major in Communication Studies:
Students who wish to pursue a major in Communication Studies are required to file a major specialization form to be officially accepted into the Weissman School. All students are strongly advised to declare their major as soon as possible, as delaying will cause problems when applying for graduation.
If you wish to declare your major, the department requires you to attend a major declaration session, where a faculty member will advise you on what the current major requirements are and instruct you on how to complete the major specialization form.
Please contact our department (see below) to schedule you for the next available session.
