The Communication major at the University of Utah emphasizes academic learning, including theoretical and methodological expertise, along with practical and technical knowledge and training. While many of our graduates go on to be practitioners—technicians and producers within the areas of public relations, advertising, integrated marketing, print and broadcast journalism, documentary film making, and photography—they also go into fields with broad knowledge and inquiry; capacity for leadership; innovation and entrepreneurialism; critical thinking; strong decision-making skills; the ability to think, speak, write, and listen; and a general knowledge of the liberal-arts tradition.

In the field of Psychology we seek to understand human thought and behavior, addressing questions with relevance to virtually every aspect of modern life. Psychology research identifies the links between mind, body and the social world, and is behind the design of everything from smartphones and children’s toys to online networks and public health ads. Psychology also includes the more well-known domain of counseling, which helps individuals lead happier and healthier lives. Our department faculty has been acknowledged with numerous teaching, research and service awards, and the department recently ranked among the top 50 clinical psychology programs in the United States.

SOCIAL WORK (BSW)
In thousands of ways, social workers help people from every background, across the nation and around the world. Social work is not just a job or even a profession. Rather, it is a passion to make things better at all levels of intervention. Social workers are employed in government, family service agencies, child welfare organizations, hospitals, substance abuse programs, aging services, criminal justice agencies, and schools, among other settings. Clients may be individuals, families, groups, organizations, or whole communities. LEARN MORE
