Bachelor of Arts Program
Communication Studies is an interdisciplinary program that draws from an array of fields in the Humanities and Social Sciences. This interdisciplinarity allows students and faculty alike to explore a variety of approaches, theories, methods and other resources for analyzing communication in social, economic, political and cultural environments that are rapidly changing and becoming increasingly complex.
The program at Laurier offers a four-year Honours degree, and a four-year Combined Honours degree in which Communication Studies is combined with another Honours major. There is also a co-op option that allows eligible students to work in communications-related summer jobs.
In addition to a small number of required courses, students are able to choose from among a wide range of other Communication Studies courses. The program is designed to allow students to customize their education, to match personal interests and career plans and to keep pace with rapid changes in the field.
