Communication Studies Major | Undergraduate Admissions | Concordia University Irvine

Communication Studies

School of Arts and Sciences


A crucial skill in any professional environment is the ability to communicate well and convey your meaning clearly and succinctly. As a Communication Studies major, you will study human interaction in all contexts: interpersonal and family relationships, small groups, intercultural associations, organizations, and the media. You will also study the very skills today’s employers are looking for -- like critical and analytical thinking, problem solving, team building, as well as oral, written, and interpersonal communication skills.

Develop your understanding of communication theory and research methodologies, and your proficiency in oral, written, and mediated communication. A Communication Studies major can open the door to creativity and connectivity in a vast array of career fields, including social media, journalism, business administration, public relations, broadcasting, sales, marketing, law, human resources, pre-seminary, and education.

Building on a well-rounded foundation of core courses, you can choose from two areas of specialization to focus your Communication Studies degree:

You will study a varied curriculum that includes both the classical courses associated with the discipline and those that reflect contemporary developments in the field.
