B.A. in Communication

The Department of Communication features both the study of communication theory and criticism, and the development of practical skills. At a time when media (print, telephone, television, internet), modes of communication (oral, written, visual), and contexts (face-to-face, public, and organizational) converge in our careers and daily lives, the department offers the first state-university program in the Bay Area to cover this interrelated spectrum of today's communication in new and traditional forms. The Department of Communication's broad range of courses and programs (from public, interpersonal, and family communication to broadcasting, new media of electronic communication, and everything in between) provides exciting choices.
