Communication Studies from Oglethorpe University proposes that communication is your key to success and so you will learn how to open more doors.


At Communication Studies from Oglethorpe University, you’ll work on your own communication skills, from crafting a persuasive piece of writing to delivering a moving speech. You’ll also learn to look at communication through a critical lens.

Learning Outcomes

Communication students analyze both text and subtext, separate fact from fiction, and break down the components used by other powerful communicators (both ethical and not-so-ethical, an important distinction). You’ll emerge as not only a more effective communicator, but also a better-informed consumer of media and messaging today.

The curriculum includes courses in topics such as public speaking, journalism, business communication, persuasive writing, and broadcast and electronic media. And because it’s Oglethorpe – where we love to draw innovative connections between disciplines – there is also a rotating selection of possible electives, such as:

  • Just Food: The Rhetorics and Politics of Food
