The revolution in technology has given added importance to the study of communication. RIC's B.A. in communication offers five concentrations: journalism; media communication; public and professional communication; public relations/advertising; and speech, language and hearing science. Students receive both classroom instruction and internship experiences, and the program’s flexible requirements allow faculty to accommodate individual backgrounds, needs and interests.

The department also offers a minor in communication and a minor in digital media production. Digital media production is for any student who wants to expand their digital media skills and learn to produce professional audio, video, music, podcasts, live streams and other multimedia projects. Courses include the foundations of concept development and scriptwriting for various forms of media and opportunities for advanced study in video and audio production and other forms of multimedia content creation.
