The leading college-ranking publisher has revealed its list of top 20 Online Communications Degree Programs.

EDsmart.org, a nationally recognized publisher of college resources and independent rankings, has released the 2021 edition of the Top 20 Online Communications Degree Programs to help prospective students and their families research the top schools offering online bachelor’s and master’s degrees in communications.

Communication degrees are highly applicable to many industries, and graduates can choose from a variety of career paths. A qualification in this discipline will provide students with the necessary skills to excel in fields like journalism, reporting, broadcasting, and other media outlets. People with strong creative skills could land a job in the marketing or advertising industry or end up working as a PR specialist for a non-profit organization too.

PR specialists and marketing managers will be in high demand in the US, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting a 10-percent growth in job numbers for both industries from 2020 to 2030. Because of the prevalent need for professionals in these industries, graduates with a background in communications encounter an unemployment rate lower than that of most other majors. Communication graduates lead the pack when it comes to finding a job upon graduation, making it a leading choice of students in the United States.

Earning a reputable degree is an integral step for a career in the communication discipline be it online or on-campus. However online colleges are great for busy people, but it’s hard to know which programs are the best. Finding the best ones in the US means sifting through the dozens of universities that offer communication studies. That’s where EDsmart comes in. With its team of experienced editors and data analysts, EDsmart has examined dozens of communication programs across the US to find the best options.

Our research team has reviewed numerous communication programs to determine which ones deliver the best value for your tuition dollar. We proudly announce our picks for the Top 20 online communication Degree programs of 2021,” says said Tyson Stevens, managing editor of EDsmart.
