The Online Bachelor's Degree in Communication is a well-rounded degree that includes courses that teach interpersonal communication, business and strategic communication, and media oriented communication.

Our professors, teaching the latest communication content based on academic peer-reviewed research, will provide students with a richer, more engaging, and rewarding learning experience than they would receive at many of the other established online-only institutions. This degree program has created one of the first truly effective Online Public Speaking courses.
