Learning That Inspires Your Intellect

BA in English and Communications

Communication is an essential part of our daily lives. Television, the Internet, subway signs, magazines, radio, telephones, books, brochures - these are just a few of the ways we are involved with communication.  Since communication is such an essential part of who we are, then it is vital that related fields have well trained individuals who can communicate clearly, correctly, and accurately.

This degree combines interdisciplinary theory and practice, including courses in writing for media outlets; video production and editing; verbal and presentational skills for the workplace; and literature and creative writing.
