DePaul’s Communication Studies program encourages you to think, speak and write clearly. Because communication involves interacting with others, the courses you’ll be taking require you to communicate in a variety of public, small group and performance-style settings.
You will be encouraged to become an ethical communicator, to view events from multiple perspectives, to understand the multicultural influences of communication in today’s world and to question the basic problems of human communication in order to understand self, others and events.
Because communication is involved in the majority of professions, Communication Studies is a valuable degree, whether you’re interested in working in politics, non-profit organizations, education or research.
In addition to a variety of combined degree programs, we offer a combined bachelor’s + master’s degree program, allowing you to complete a bachelor’s and a graduate degree in as few as five years. You may choose to combine your bachelor’s in Communication Studies degree with a Health Communication, Journalism, or Media and Cinema Studies master’s degree program.
97 percent of 2017 Communication Studies graduates were employed, continuing their education or not seeking employment after graduation.
