Political Communication - BS in Communication


Return to: BS in Communication  

Students in this concentration focus on developing political communications that target diverse audiences. The interdisciplinary curriculum joins the fields of political science and communication and examines communication as an integral component of the public sector. Students gain an understanding of how information flows through political processes and learn how to plan and manage crises and to promote positive social change through effective communication strategies. Through their coursework students also examine legal aspects of social issues and how organizations employ communication strategies to advance political goals.
