  • Ability to work in teams
  • Ability to communicate with diverse audiences in a variety of settings
  • Capacity to create and/or edit written reports
  • Ability to sell or influence others

The Communication Studies program offers a variety of dynamic classes that provide the firm foundation necessary for creating a successful career in fields such as media, health communication, human resources, public relations, and marketing. You’ll come out of the communication program with the ability to think critically, express ideas impactfully, and understand the diverse forms of communication that reach a broad audience.
