Why Major in Communication Studies?  

Because you enjoy working with people!

[Note:  Some programs are called Communication Studies.  These tend to focus on human communication -- interpersonal and intercultural communication, public speaking, small group communication, etc.  Other programs are called Communications (with an "s").  These tend to focus on mass communication, journalism, public relations, etc.]

Here at Highline:

Students wishing to eventually major in Communication Studies or Communications will follow an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree plan (see requirements and planning sheet).

In consultation with a Communication Studies faculty advisor (see list of Communication Studies faculty), you might instead choose to complete a Method 2 A.A. degree – concentrating your A.A. studies by choosing three Communication Studies courses that will transfer to your 4-year university Communication Studies or Communications degree program.

When you are Planning Your Transfer:

The National Communication Association also provides a list of universities and colleges offering Communication Studies degree programs.

The National Communication Association lists twenty-two areas of concentration from which Communication Majors can choose -- including health communication, mediation/dispute resolution, organizational communication, political communication, and so much more.  Each university or college will have their own array of specialities for you to choose from.
