Communication bachelor's degree available at Ohio University-Zanesville

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (March 16, 2004) -- The Communication Studies program at Ohio University - Zanesville is hosting an information night for those interested in earning a bachelor's degree in communication entirely in Zanesville. The session, which includes free pizza, will be held at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 16 in Elson Hall Room 186.

The ability to succeed in the workplace, any workplace, is largely determined by effective communication skills and an understanding of communication issues. The Communication Studies degree prepares students to be effective and responsible communicators in a global society where leadership and innovation are prized, and responsibility and accountability are understood.

Program coordinator Sheida Shirvani, Ph.D., explained why the program, formerly called Interpersonal Communication, is more relevant to today's world than ever before.

"The program has recently undergone a number of changes that have enhanced the value of this degree," said Shirvani. "Faculty throughout Ohio University studied the curriculum and made subtle changes to combine the best features of a liberal arts education with the benefits of a professional education to assure success for graduates."

Students in the program develop a specialization by selecting an area of concentration, which provides a focus to the major. On the Zanesville Campus, students may complete all of their degree requirements by choosing to concentrate in either Health Communication or Organizational Communication.

Those attending the March 16 session will learn more about the two areas of concentration, the kind of classes required, and the careers available in the field. Anyone interested in attending the information session should RSVP by March 15 to Shirvani at (740) 588-1499.
