Earning a degree in Communication provides the skills and knowledge considered most important by employers today. You can extend the value of your Communication degree even further by participating in one or more of the COM major’s specializations:
Specializations provide you with essential knowledge of communication methods and techniques and help you build the necessary skills to present yourself as an expert in several areas that are sought after by employers and organizations.
Each specialization is an 18-credit program that includes theory-based and practice-based courses by leading scholars and industry professionals. If you’re looking to gain a wider perspective, you may elect to combine specializations. View all specializations at once with our "At-a-Glance Chart". With careful planning, a specialization shouldn’t take any more credits that the major—contact an advisor in the Office of Student Services for expert advice.
