Complete Your Bachelor’s Degree in Frederick

Be heard.

Regardless of field, communication skills are vital. Medical researchers need support in publishing their breakthrough discoveries. Economists interpret data and need to share their findings with others. Government agencies benefit from those who can write press releases and speak to the public. And nonprofits must persuade others to support their causes. That’s what those in communication do each day. Advance your career with a degree in communication by attending evening or online classes designed for working adults at Mount St. Mary’s University.

As a student in the Mount’s adult undergraduate communication program you will:

  • Attend convenient classes. Classes meet one night per week (6-10 p.m.). Our Frederick campus is minutes from I-70 and I-270, near the FSK Mall.
  • Finish at your own pace. Courses are offered year round in accelerated 5- and 8-week sessions. Take the courses you need at your convenience.
  • Receive specialized support for adult students. One-on-one advising and a customized degree plan are available and encouraged for all students.

Mount St. Mary’s University’s Frederick Campus invites you to our new Wednesdays with the Mount series where you can make a virtual appointment with an advisor. All your transfer questions can be answered from 12 – 1 p.m. or 2 – 4 p.m. through a Zoom session every other Wednesday through January 6 (no meetings will be available over the holidays).
