“RRU is a learning community rather than an isolated learning experience”

BA in Professional Communication

(2015)

“The cohort creates a collaborative and engaging learning experience, which makes the journey easier”

"Applicable in many different fields, this versatile communications degree provides a stepping-stone to a variety of graduate programs.

Teamwork forms an integral part of the BA in Professional Communications program and enriches the learning experience, as does residency. Residency is an incredibly exhausting but rewarding experience. In residency, you are encouraged to venture out of your comfort zone to improve self-confidence and to foster personal growth. You will leave residency a changed person.

I previously studied online without a cohort, and now recognize and appreciate the difference between the two methods. Although online learning can be an isolating experience, being in a cohort with two residency periods creates a powerful connection between students. During residency, students develop a supportive network amongst themselves that continues throughout the entire program."
