The Communication Studies program educates students in the theoretical and applied dimensions of human and media communication. Grounded in its liberal arts foundation, students who pursue Communication Studies will be prepared to excel in specific communication or cross-disciplinary contexts, research, and graduate school pursuits such as law, counseling, marketing, public relations and journalism.
Communication majors are gainfully employed in organizations all over the world. What does a communication major learn? Well, the answer depends on the course of study undertaken at college. Most of our majors study under one of two broad topic areas: Human Communication (commonly known as Interpersonal Communication) and Media Communication (commonly known as Mass Communication). The Communication Studies Department at Young Harris College offers both emphases to students pursuing the Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies.
