The Communication degree at Robert Morris University is a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Communication with concentrations and minors in advertising, applied journalism, communication studies, corporate communication, public relations and sports communication. A primary focus of the concentrations is engaged learning with coursework reflective of cutting edge curriculum. RMU Communication students intern locally and nationally which positions them to launch careers in the professional market or for continuation in graduate studies. The Communication faculty are a blend of practitioners and academics who subscribe to the teacher-scholar model as they guide the professional development of students’ leadership and career exploration through extracurricular clubs and national conference experiences. Communication majors have the opportunity to work in our award-winning student converged media newspaper RMU Sentry Media, which allows students to gain hands-on publishing experience as members of its writing, design, and editorial staff, as well as build their portfolios and hone their multimedia skills. Students also are heavily involved in RMU Radio and RMU-TV.

and ethically across a variety of media channels.”
