The Utah Valley University Communication Department is shaping students to become
the next top leaders in journalism, public relations and speech communication through courses and engaged-learning experiences that are
theoretically driven, innovative, and applied. The department prepares students with
the necessary skills to communicate visually, orally and through written documentation
within the context demanded by the business, journalism, advertising, and public relations
worlds. Students are also equipped with a solid ethical foundation and an understanding
of diversity and interdependence in the global community.
The Communication Department offers Associate and Bachelor degrees of the Arts and
Science with their respective concentrations in Journalism, Public Relations and Speech
Communication. The UVU Communication Department is rapidly growing and creating exciting
opportunities with our clubs and internships. Many of our students that have earned
a bachelor degree in communications can be found in some of the top companies around
the country. The Communications Department also provides internships and networking
trips that give students real life work experience and the opportunity to create the
connections that will propel them to the next level of their careers.
