California State University, Northridge
Communication Studies B.A.

Communication is central to the ongoing processes of culture and society and is therefore a vitally important field of study. At CSUN, the Department of Communication Studies offers a curriculum that embraces a wide range of disciplinary traditions in the study of human communication. These include: rhetorical studies, performance studies, cultural studies, language behavior and communication theory. Coursework includes introductory and advanced study in interpersonal communication, group communication, organizational communication, intercultural communication, rhetorical analysis, textual analysis and performance studies.
We use humanistic, aesthetic, and social scientific methods to examine communication processes and patterns in a variety of contexts. We provide instruction in the knowledge and skills people need to communicate and function effectively in business, entertainment, law, government, the ministry, teaching, the performing arts, politics, international relations, and numerous other areas. The knowledge and skills offered in this department help our students to build satisfying and productive relationships in their careers as well as in their personal lives, and to become active and reflective global citizens.
