What is a Facilitated Communication Degree?

An accredited communication degree can help a student prepare for a job, a job interview, or any other work.

If a student can demonstrate that they can effectively communicate with the work environment, the degree can serve as a solid grounding in the skills necessary to work effectively.

Here are the three steps that must be taken for a Facilitation Communication Degree to be recognized by the Department of Labor: 1.

Students must pass the ACT, SAT, and ACT+ exams and pass the interview.


Students may apply to the University of Chicago or other accredited institution for permission to participate in a class.

Students who apply must be at least 18 years old.


Students will be evaluated on a number of measures including communication, writing, and speaking skills.

The program must be approved by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

Students with an accredited degree can work in any field where they can communicate effectively, including a job in a non-profit organization or in a service-learning program.

In addition, students may take the Communication Skills Program (CSS) in which they must take three courses in the fall, four courses in spring, and three courses each spring and fall semester.

The CSS is intended for students who want to work as a service provider or in an organization that focuses on communication skills.

For more information on the CSS, please visit the Office for Undergraduate Education website.

The U.S. Department of Education website also contains information on accredited communication degrees.
