Minor in Communication Studies

Communication studies is interdisciplinary and based on knowledge that has evolved out of the humanities, the performing arts, and the social-behavioral sciences. This knowledge focuses on human communication processes, cultural practices, and ethical and aesthetic preferences. The communication studies program emphasizes training in oral communication skills and the cognitive principles and strategies that support them.

Students learn to refine their communication skills in public, interpersonal, small groups, and organizational contexts necessary to assist in both personal and professional growth. The refinement of communication skills and concepts as well as the development of standards of ethical and thoughtful communication can contribute significantly to the building of a more mutually responsible community and a more civil and humane world.
