C&IS to Launch Three Online Bachelor’s Degree Programs in Fall 2022

Nov 29, 2021

The College of Communication and Information Sciences (C&IS) has recently announced its plan to launch three new online degree programs. Beginning in fall 2022, the College will offer bachelor’s degrees in public relations, advertising and communication studies through the University’s UA Online program.

The online degree for each of the three majors will offer the same courses as the in-person versions of the programs. Applications for admission are available now to begin classes next fall.

“We are eager to add these new online options to the outstanding curricula the College already offers students,” said Dr. Mark Nelson, dean of C&IS. “The opportunity to expand our programs to an even broader group of prospective students through virtual means is something we believe will continue to strengthen both our national and international profiles,” he said.

These new online degree programs in C&IS will be offered in addition to a variety of existing online programs in the College including: a minor in communication studies; master’s degree programs in advertising and public relations, communication studies, journalism and media studies, and library and information studies; and a doctoral degree in communication and information sciences with a focused area of study in library and information studies.

UA Online is recognized as a national leader in online education. For more information about online degree programs offered through UA Online, visit online.ua.edu.
