The study of human communication allows students to develop critical thinking skills, an understanding of cultural and gender-related differences in how people communicate, and it sharpens their marketable skills such as writing, public speaking and persuasion.
Students with a B.A. in human communication pursue jobs in a wide range of industries including management, sales, human resources, higher education (admissions and student services), marketing and training. Many students also continue their education in graduate school, law school and business or professional graduate degree programs.
Students must choose one track from the following: General Human Communication, Business and Professional Communication, Health Communication, Interpersonal Communication, or Social Innovation and Activism.
How to Apply
Admission to UCF constitutes automatic admission to the human communication major.
Internships Begin Successful Careers
Faculty in the human communication program recognize that internships are key to launching successful careers. To that end, we encourage our students to pursue internships in a wide-variety of fields and offer academic credit for approved internships. Many of our students intern at local organizations, nonprofits and businesses such as Orlando Sports Medicine, Chatter Bug Media, Central Florida Community Arts and Feeding Children Everywhere.
