Good morning, I am wondering if it is better to pursue a second bachelors degree in Communications or pursue a grad cert in communications.

Hello Nose,

Second bachelors degree vs certificate is a question we hear a lot - in fact we have a frequently asked question file on this issue. Read that file for a look at all the angles and considerations that might impact your decision.

CLICK through to the article: Bachelors vs certificate for the whole scoop.

You did not say what your original bachelors major was in or when it was earned, but overall since communications is NOT a career area that requires a bachelors in that specific major I'd recommend you NOT earn a second bachelors degree UNLESS the career you are choosing requires it.

All the Best
