Communication Studies

It all starts with the Word.

Communication allows people to develop and exchange ideas, solve problems and work together to attain common objectives. 

What we say and how we say it are part of our witness to the world. 

As a Communication Studies major, you’ll practice communicating ethically and effectively in your speech and writing and learn to apply communication concepts in a variety of personal, professional, corporate and intercultural contexts.
