Communication Studies

Academic major:  B.A. or B.S. in Communication Studies
Minor: Communication Studies

Do you love communication but can’t decide on a specific area to study?  Would you like the freedom to shape your own communication major (with an advisor’s assistance) in an area of study that is uniquely yours?

If so, consider a major or minor in Communication Studies at Trevecca Nazarene University.  This program provides a broad-based study of human communication and allows you the flexibility of putting together your own individualized plan of study in the discipline.  Students whose programs consist primarily of dramatic arts and public speaking courses will be awarded the Bachelor of Arts degree. Those students who concentrate in interpersonal, organizational, mass media, and journalism course work will be awarded the Bachelor of Science degree.
