Learn why we communicate
Communication studies provide a fundamental understanding of why we communicate and how to understand each other. These skills are vital in any situation, from interpersonal relationships in a variety of settings (social, family, academic, workplace) to understanding intercultural communication and persuasive messaging. You will be able to use these skills to enhance any career area, or to work as a communications specialist for a variety of private, not-for-profit, and public sector (i.e. government) employers.
