Because communication is the most basic social behavior and the means by which individuals function in society, its study is relevant to many academic and career interests.
However, the Communication major at University of Arizona does not focus on specific skills training such as public relations, broadcast journalism, or sports marketing. Current University of Arizona students must attend a major information session to declare the major. Incoming students to the University of Arizona can select “Communication” as their intended major on their application for admission.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
