The communication major includes nine credits of departmental core courses, and nine to 15 credits of courses in one of three emphasis areas: human communication, journalism, and multimedia production.
Intended to be primarily a transfer degree, this major is for students interested in mass media, customer relations, human resource development, teaching, sales, public relations, advertising, and business. The preprofessional and students who wish to enter other careers which demand effective human interaction should benefit.
