Welcome to Communication
Message from the Chair
Whatever you decide to do with your life, you will need to know how to communicate. Communication is a fundamental part of life. Human beings communicate orally, in writing, through body language, across cultures, telling stories, using digital media, using social media, as well as many other ways.
Because the field of communication is so broad, we offer a Bachelor’s Degree with an emphasis in five different areas of study that we call tracks. These tracks are taught by specialists in each of the different areas of study. All of the Communication Faculty have studied, done research, produced film, or have worked professionally in their field. Internships are also available in several of the communication tracks.
These different tracks allow you study Organizational Communication, Strategic Communication, Leadership Communication, Media Studies, Digital Filmmaking & Media Arts, and General Communication.
Graduates of the Communication Dept. at UCCS have done a wide variety of things with their degrees. Here are just a few: High School Teacher, Sports Announcer, Actor, Marketing Communication Manager, Anchorperson, Digital Film Editor, Lawyer, Journalist, Documentary Film Producer, Human Resources Manager, Script Writer, Reporter, Media Critic, Public Information Officer, Minister, Media Buyer, Public Relations Officer, Film Maker, and even College Professor.
The Communication Department has also developed a Bachelor of Innovation Degree in Digital Filmmaking.
Communication is a very exciting and growing area of study. Everyone needs to know how to communicate effectively. Please take a look at our website and contact us if you have any questions.
