This major educates students in different theories and practical applications of communication skills – such as interpersonal communication, small group communication, public speaking, nonverbal communication and persuasion. Communication Studies also makes an excellent pre-law, pre-seminary or pre-graduate school program.
This Communication Studies (BS) degree at Appalachian State University is structured by theme, yet remains flexible enough to allow students to tailor their courses to their specifics needs.
