Degree Details

Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies

Program Type:



Communication is essential for all parts of life. From communicating with friends and family to being able to communicate effectively on the job, these skills last a lifetime. 

At LSUA, Communication Studies is one of six concentrations within the Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies program. Other concentrations within the degree include Sports Broadcasting, Public Relations, Visual Communications, Human Communication, and Speech Communications. 

Our professors take teaching outside the classroom and engage students in lively debates, discussions, and activities. LSUA students get hands-on experience both in and out of the classroom by participating in campaigns, research projects, and internships. 

At LSUA, our Communication Studies professors are experts in their fields and enjoy teaching students what they have learned over a course of a lifetime. With small class sizes, LSUA professors also get to know their students and are accessible outside the classroom. LSUA professors want to see their students succeed, and help them succeed by being there to act as a mentor and advisor. 

Students within the Communication Studies concentration have numerous outlets in which to gain more experience in their field while also participating in campus activities. Students can join the debate team, audition for a play, or even help cover sporting events on campus. 

At LSUA, a concentration in Communication Studies will set students up for a lifetime of success in a myriad of fields including speechwriting, corporate communications, journalism, and education.
