Your fascination lies within the creative realm with a slant toward the technical. Perhaps you look for new ways to tell stories, express yourself, and get other people excited about what you know. You recognize the need to clearly communicate the complex ideas of today’s technology.  

Embry-Riddle offers a unique Communication program that answers the demand for those who can integrate science and technology with solid communication fundamentals. You will gather information in technical and scientific areas and practice disseminating it to a non-technologically advanced audience, for example.

To complement your degree requirements with what most interests you, you’ll choose from a long list of minor courses of study. You can also pursue flight ratings if you elect to do so.

You will graduate with a degree that has focus and expertise to position you for broad career opportunities in many areas of communication.

The B.S. in Communication program emphasizes writing skills, creative thinking, and technology, so you’ll be prepared for a creative and rewarding career.

Learn aviation, aerospace, and technical vocabulary; improve your reading and writing skills; gain technological perspective — all of which will help you to develop a professional robust portfolio. You’ll be prepared for a career with traditional media or in corporate communication, aviation communication, or technical journalism.
