The Communication Major

The Communication major emphasizes an understanding of communication principles and humanistic approaches to communication studies as well as the development of skills in public, organizational, and interpersonal contexts. The major provides a foundation for graduate work, or for a career in any profession that deals with the public, such as politics, law, business, social work, or teaching.

Students majoring in Communication may focus their course work by choosing one or more of the following concentrations: Public Relations, Public Communication, Organizational Communication, or Interpersonal-Intercultural Communication.
