No matter who you are, you'll find almost everything you need to know about our program here. If you're not yet a student at ASU and you are interested in our program, check out the resource page for prospective students first. And if your question isn't answered there, please let us know.

As one of the top comprehensive programs in the UNC System, we are blessed with many talented students. We have five majors: Advertising, Communication Studies, Electronic Media/Broadcasting, Journalism, and Public Relations. Each major will give you the tools to think creatively and significantly contribute to your industry.

While not required, internships are sought by many of our students as part of their education. We invite those browsing this site to let us know if you are looking for interns; we would be glad to talk with you and find an intern to fit your needs.

We're especially excited about the Kellar Radio Talent Institute, which is held in the new Beasley Media Complex at the historic Rivers Street/Depot Street intersection.

We invite you to explore our website and learn more about Communication at Appalachian State University!
