Communication Studies

What Can You Do With a Communications Degree? Engage, Connect, Collaborate

To communicate effectively and succeed in the workplace, you must be an exceptional writer, speaker and listener. These skills are the pillars of Bridgewater State University’s Department of Communication Studies. They’re also at the heart of our programs, from our public relations degree concentration to film/video arts production to communication and media studies.

So, what is communication studies all about at BSU? Our communication and media studies programs enable students to gain real-world experience, such as producing media on-location and in BSU’s TV studio, or working in our department’s public relations agency.

Our comprehensive communication studies degree programs will help you develop valuable experience in communications to pursue several career and graduate school pathways. You’ll also:

  • Learn from internationally known researchers and practitioners. Whether you’re earning a degree in public relations, film and video arts production or another communication studies degree, your education is in expert hands.
  • Build a foundation in the liberal arts. From our public relations degree concentration to communication and media studies, our programs will give you a well-rounded education and help you develop public speaking, writing, critical thinking and other communication skills.
  • Gain hands-on experience. While working toward your communication studies degree or a minor, you’ll have experiential learning opportunities from internships to TV studio work.
