Northern's communication studies students learn to understand and practice communication, developing insight into and ability in effective expression and listening.
In this compact, agile communications program, we'll help you tailor experiences and projects to your special needs and interests.
Our communication studies degree also prepares you for professional schools in law, journalism, public relations, and organizational communication; or graduate studies in speech communication, rhetoric, public relations, mass media, and others.
You can also test your abilities and sharpen your competition skills on Northern's Speech and Debate team, which places competitively in state and regional meets and whose members have qualified for national competition.
Public Relations Emphasis
Public relations specialists read, research, write and speak well - they're doers who have a creative flair. NSU's Communication Studies program offers a focus on public relations, opening opportunities for you if you're interested in preparing and sharing information that keeps people informed.
