Transitions teach us about ourselves. In the School of Communication Studies, we see transitions in college as a good thing. If you’re thinking about changing your major, look no further – COMM is a place that you can call home.

The key is flexibility. COMM is a flexible major that allows you to customize your degree to your interests and career goals. Students can finish the bulk of the major coursework in three to four semesters and, COMM offers all the courses you need both in our in-person and in our online program to finish your degree from anywhere in the world.
