In addition to being an on-campus major, the BS in Health Communication can now be completed online. It is a perfect program for place-bound and nontraditional students, including working adults who want to finish their Bachelor’s degree with the aim of career advancement.
It is possible to complete the Health Communication major entirely online. The Communication Studies and Health Promotion Departments offer a selection of online courses that can fulfill the requirements for the bachelor’s degree, typically in two years. The majority of the other coursework required for graduation can also be completed online or by taking some courses at a local community college and transferring the credit to EIU. The program also works well for a student who has completed an associate degree.
Students in the online program have the same opportunities to participate in internships and other integrative learning experiences. The online program provides the same quality and content as face-to-face classes. On their transcripts, students receive their "BS in Health Communication" (the same as on-campus students).
