          • Testimony
            , B.A.

            What I loved about UofA was the independence of the School of Communication and its expertise. Other universities either put the majors in the Business School (marketing) or A&S (writing). UofA recognized, much earlier than most, the unique nature of Communications. Their focus on the disciplines involved created a level of expertise and a depth of knowledge that I found impossible to match.
