BA Communication Management

University Campus

It's an exciting time to be a communicator—new media, new tools, new audiences. Blogging, SEO, social media, PR 2.0, broadcast, print and web writing, and public speaking are just the beginning. Every business depends on people who can effectively communicate—from negotiating the next business deal to upholding a company’s public image. It's your time to connect the world to the news and information it needs.

Why choose Communication Management at Saint Leo?

Communication Management is part of Saint Leo's Donald R. Tapia School of Business—so you're not just learning to write and speak effectively; you're connecting those skills to real, business-ready strategies and success.

Develop a collection of professional documents for your portfolio through class projects and internships. Participate in Saint Leo's annual Business Plan Competition. Take advantage of the trend-setting technologies at the brand new School of Business building. Get advice from the pros—your professors bring years of industry experience to the classroom, and frequent guest speakers bring lessons straight from the boardroom and newsroom.

You can also hone your craft by contributing to Saint Leo's literary magazine, Sandhill Review, writing for the Lions' Pride student newspaper, and producing shows from the WSLU Radio station.
