Programme Description

Bachelor's in Communication

Hope College

Communication majors create and share meaning for the common good.

Join our department to discover the central, complex role of communication in society. Our students learn to communicate effectively across multiple contexts — in civic life, across cultures, in workplaces and in relationships.

With a degree in communication from Hope, you’re showcasing your commitment to ethical, competent communication.

Whatever you choose to do with your communication degree — and trust us, the opportunities are boundless — you’ll get a head start on life outside of the classroom by taking part in an internship, completing rigorous coursework, exploring the world through off-campus study and finding your place in student clubs throughout campus.

Degree programs

Our department offers a major and minor in communication. Our degree combines theory and practice, while electives allow you to tailor the program to your interests.

In keeping with Hope’s robust liberal arts tradition, we prepare our students for an ever-evolving global society and workplace.

Communication majors learn how to create and share meaning for the common good. They go on to excel in various fields, ranging from public relations to law. Our students tend to be curious and self-directed, so our program is designed to equip you with enduring life skills that are applicable to a range of careers.

Courses

Taking communication courses at Hope can mean working closely alongside our faculty on a research project, producing media in our television studio or designing a public relations solution.

Our courses emphasize various types of communication:

  • Rhetoric
  • Relational communication
  • Media studies and production
  • Organizational communication
  • Global communication

Through research, experiential learning and civic engagement, you will gain a deep understanding of how communication plays an integral role in social life.

After graduation

Communication majors enjoy a robust and agile skill set. Being equipped to think critically, make decisions ethically and have a strong understanding of research and analysis means you can walk into many jobs a step above the competition.

Our graduates go on to careers in diverse fields. Many go on to attend graduate school. If you graduated with a major or minor in communication, please get in touch with us. We'd love to hear from you!
