The ability to communicate effectively is integral to finding success in any chosen career path. The Communication, BS program at ASU’s West campus provides unique resources to students, including the nationally-recognized Communication Assessment Learning Lab (CALL), with an added focus on data and statistical research as compared to the Communication, BA program.
The School of Social and Behavioral Sciences offers a BS degree in communication in the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at ASU's West campus.
The study of communication comprises research, practice and advocacy. Relying upon diverse competencies, it requires an understanding of what contributes to and detracts from effective human communication.
The coursework and faculty-led research projects in the communication program cover an array of topics, including work and personal relationships, conflict resolution, social media and technology, global communication, communication philosophy, and risk and crisis communication. Students explore communication in organizations and interpersonal relationships; in public, political and social situations; and across cultures. The Bachelor of Science degree differs from the Bachelor of Arts degree in that it requires two statistics courses.
