Like all HPU students, those planning to major in Communication begin in the freshman and sophomore years by taking a wide range of core courses introducing the major disciplines of an undergraduate education (science, foreign languages, humanities, and social sciences). In your first two years, you are introduced through different academic diciplines to the core knowledge a university-educated student is expected to master. These courses also give you the neccessary background to advance on to higher level coursework. Students pursuing the BA-communication take the following core curriculum:
