Communication (B.S.)

The Bachelor of Science in Communication is a more general program, giving students the opportunity to explore each of the other Communication programs offered at Endicott College (Digital Journalism, Marketing Communication, Internet Studies, and Digital Film Making).

Links and Contacts

Through their course work, students pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Communication explore the many ways media impacts the individual and society, locally and internationally. Because Communication is a more general major, students also complete hands-on work within their communication courses. Additionally, students may begin their studies in the Communication major and then move into another Communication major or concentration as their interests develop.

Communication graduates leave Endicott with a full toolbox of skills that enable them to enter a variety of fields.
