Prepare for a major in Communication Studies by taking recommended courses to fulfill the requirements of a transfer degree.
Communications studies encompasses a broad range of areas of human communications
including interpersonal, small group, public speaking, mass media and multicultural
communication. It uses theory and tools to analyze the differing contexts of communications
and how social, political and media-based influences shape those contexts. Students
explore how communication both shapes and is shaped by society and develop knowledge
of the globalized and digitized dynamics of contemporary communication.
