The Hugh Downs School of Human Communication at the Tempe campus offers our students two undergraduate degree programs in communication.

Our degrees focus on how message processes create, maintain and transform identities, relationships, workplaces, communities, civic and cultural groups. Our students learn how to write and speak effectively and convey complex ideas simply.

Our bachelor of science degree provides you with a liberal arts grounding and a social science focus. You will be prepared for employment in a variety of career fields or for graduate study.

Our bachelor of arts degree provides a culturally-based liberal arts focus with a second-language requirement, preparing you for employment in communication-intensive fields or for graduate study.
