Online Communication Degree Selected for Promotion by CU System

UCCS Department of Communication

The Online BA in Communication, offered by the UCCS Department of Communication, was selected to be part of a CU System initiative to promote select online degree programs for fall 2020. The UC-Denver Office of Digital Education is currently working with faculty in the UCCS Communication department – as well as with the Provost’s Office and the offices of Marketing and Admissions at UCCS – on a targeted marketing effort as a part of a larger collaborative system effort that includes a total of 14 degree programs across the Boulder, Denver, Anschutz, and Colorado Springs campuses. Faculty members Janice Thorpe and Connie Staley, together with department chairperson David Nelson, are leading the Communication department’s contribution to this accelerated marketing caompaign.

The Communication BA degree can be earned by students through 100% online coursework. There are two concentrations: Professional Communication, and Applied Digital Media Studies. Each of these concentrations focuses on specific and strategic content to prepare students for immediate entry into the workplace. Courses are offered year-round primarily in 8-week (or shorter) formats, allowing students to complete the degree in under 36 months if attending full-time and year-round.

From a planning document submitted as part of the marketing campaign development: ” Typical employment opportunities for graduates of this program include but are not limited to social media and marketing, human resources and employee relations, corporate communication, communication consulting, executive/management coaching, corporate training, risk/crisis management, and non-profit management. Students also pursue graduate education, including areas such as business, law and public administration, in addition to advanced degrees in communication.  Top students are eligible to apply for the Accelerated Master’s Program that Department of Communication offers.”

For more information: last year, the Communication department created a series of short informational videos for each of their tracks including the Online BA Degree.
