SUMMARY

Studying Organizational Communication is not only a valuable choice, but usually a mandatory first step for undergraduates endeavoring to pursue a career as a public relations, a social media specialist, or an internal communications specialist. In fact, nationally, organizational communication is a very rare degree ranking as the 176th most popular area of study. In the last year, there were 1,498 organizational communication degrees conferred. In-state tuition for organizational communication at private universities is, on average, 3.1 times more spendy than their public fellows.

With only 86 colleges having programs for this degree you could have a more finite list of the institutions that will have an option for you. If you are hoping to immerse yourself with other organizational communication undergrads, look at institutions in New Hampshire which have more students admitted to organizational communication than any other state. Zooming out, the top region to study organizational communication is in the New England region with Assumption College, Nichols College, and Southern New Hampshire University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the top conference to study organizational communication is the Northeast 10 Conference with Assumption College representing the conference. From our comprehensive list on the best colleges, our choice for the best university for organizational communication is The University of Texas at Austin.

The overall 'best' school is not necessarily the best school for every student. There are lots more factors to think about when selecting institution. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food might refashion your feelings of where to go to university. Here at authority.org, we've weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are intrigued by which organizational communication university is home to the best campus, the answer is Ithaca College. If you are very interested in which school has the finest campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, professor reviews, student reviews, and more so we can compare every major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our well researched list for the colleges with the best student life and, from that list, our selection of the college with the best student life for organizational communication is University of Portland. Curious why? Continue reading to learn more about our top choices. Some of our conclusions will probably shock you.

If cost is a primary factor in your choice of where you attend school, you might be cautious about Pepperdine University. Pepperdine University is our most expensive university for organizational communication, at least for out of state attendance. That being said, we have an entire list of the most expensive schools that might put the expense of Pepperdine University into perspective. For more context, you may be interested to know that organizational communication is the 188th most expensive program in America, with an average bill of $30,800. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for organizational communication on our list is California with tuition and fees at the primary institution, Pepperdine University, of $55,640. To zoom out even further, the most costly region for organizational communication is the Far West region which is best demonstrated with Pepperdine University with a cost of $55,640, George Fox University with a cost of $36,750, and University of Portland with a cost of $47,478.

Our cheapest region for organizational communication is the Plains region which is represented by Park University with a cost of $7,999, Southwest Baptist University with a cost of $23,600, and Southeast Missouri State University with a cost of $12,636. In better news, the most affordable college for organizational communication is Cleveland State University. Authority.org's comprehensive list of the most affordable colleges can be explored here.

In-state attendees can anticipate paying about $10,900 for a degree in organizational communication. That cost inflates substantially to a median of $23,400 for an out-of-state public-school undergrad. On that note, our selection for the college with the best value for organizational communication: Thomas Jefferson University. Here you can find our comprehensive list of the universities we believe to be the best value in general. That being said, this list is based on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but as we do not know what state(s) you might qualify for in-state tuition, we are approaching this discussion through out-of-state tuition costs.

Earnings for organizational communication students can vary, but within two-years of graduation students will often make in the neighborhood of $39,900. While there can be much variation in salary; top earners can bring in up to $75,600. Right out of university, the lowest earning opportunities within the organizational communication field make $21,000, which is an alright wage. The top earning grads for organizational communication attended University of Portland and if you are looking for colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The all-around diversity of organizational communication is subpar, being in the 30th percentile of majors nationally. The university with the highest composite diversity for organizational communication is Southern New Hampshire University and here you can find our general list of the universities with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Organizational Communication only is within the 26th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually above financial diversity, in the 27th percentile. White undergraduates compose the largest share, 70%, of those studying organizational communication. Additionally, 69% of undergraduates pursuing an organizational communication major are women.

The median ranking for organizational communication professors is 4.3 stars, a score which is 8% greater than the average score for all majors; which is a pretty good score. If you are interested in the most popular organizational communication professor in the country, take a look at Nils Olsen from George Washington University. It might be shocking, but the best ranked instructors for organizational communication according to students are found at George Washington University. As we including data beyond simply rankings it becomes clear that the college possessing comprehensively the best professors for organizational communication is The University of Texas at Austin. You can find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with many of the finest examples of instructors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult university to get into for organizational communication is Pepperdine University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have a general list for the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, we do hope you understand that considering academics with context mainly informed by superlatives might create problems. We at Authority encourage you to look at some of our more nuanced pages on different universities and read some of our helpful background pages on important details to think about as you progress with your school search.
