Communications Department

Communications Department

Communication skills are essential to forming and maintaining personal relationships, acquiring and excelling in a job, and relating to the world around us.

Through the study and practice of interpersonal, professional, and intercultural communication skills, students will learn how their perceptions and self- esteem affect their interactions with others. Beyond this, students will improve their abilities to speak, write, and present information effectively, whether in face-to-face interactions or in public or mass-media settings.

The Communication Program prepares students to transfer to a four-year college or university to obtain a degree in communication or a related social science field
