Next Step for Prospective Students:

Communication Studies

New technologies, the world of global business, the expectations of the service economy -- these are just some of the factors creating a demand for professionals with outstanding communication skills and knowledge of communication strategies.

BMCC's degree program in Communication Studies prepares students for opportunities in Advertising, Corporate Communications, Counseling, Event Planning, Human Resources, Marketing, Media Planning, Political Campaign Management, Public Relations, and many other careers.

Students who graduate with a degree in Communication Studies can find jobs that are well paid and can lead to high-ranking positions in business, government, education, politics, and community service. Some follow the path of the self-employed entrepreneur.

With a strong foundation in the Liberal Arts, BMCC’s Communication Studies curriculum is enriched by courses that build a student’s know-how in communicating with others - whether one-on-one, in small groups, or to vast audiences, locally, nationally and world-wide. Courses include Interpersonal Communication, Intercultural Communication, Small Group Communication, Conflict Resolution and The Mass Media. The program gives the student a choice of electives that include business, technology, and the social sciences plus an optional internship.

The Communication Studies program offers an Associate in Arts (AA) degree and is intended for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college to expand and refine their interests. Students may continue to major in Communication Studies or combine this degree with another major. The program is fully articulated with the Communication Studies program at Brooklyn College and the CUNY On-Line BA Program in Culture and Communication. It is transferable to other CUNY schools as well as colleges and universities both public and private.
