The Communication degree at Regis provides students with the skills necessary to succeed in the ever expanding field of communications. Coursework in public speaking, advanced writing, and visual communications prepare students to work in a variety of different areas upon graduation, including public relations, corporpate communications, journalism, media relations, as well as human resource management.

Communication majors can take advantage of many exciting opportunities in addition to the major itself. Required internships and service learning projects help bring communication theory into practice in the world outside of the classroom. The course of study for majors is flexible enough to allow students to double major, as well as participate in global opportunities such as a semester abroad. In addition, eligible communication majors may choose to participate in the honors program, which gives them the opportunity to engage in independent research in self-elected courses.
