The CAS department boasts award-winning teachers and researchers who bring to their work with undergraduate students an equal measure of expertise and enthusiasm.
In a top-ranked department that spans the Humanities and Social Sciences, majors and minors learn together to: think and listen critically; undertake independent and collaborative research; influence people; analyze public discourse; understand empirical studies that test communication theories; and participate more richly in civic, communal, and relational life.
As a reflection of our unique status as a Humanities and a Social Sciences department, CAS allows students to choose either a B.A. or a B.S. degree program. On World Campus exclusively, CAS offers a B.A. or B.S. in Organizational and Professional Communication.
Graduates of our program tend to go on to such jobs as: analysts and strategists, lawyers, professors, community organizers, corporate executives, freelance writers, and more.
