Do you see yourself working as a supervisor? As a business or community leader? In human resources? In sales? In health promotions? In ministry? Running for public office? Heading to law school? Working to solve social problems and making a difference in the world?

If any of these seem like possibilities for your future, then you should be a Communication Studies major.

Employers across the country tell researchers that the top traits they seek in job candidates are verbal communication and teamwork skills. Employers also want to hire people who can build relationships, who understand diversity issues, and who are highly persuasive, confident, and motivated. In Communication Studies, we teach you the skills that will get you the job and that will get you promoted once you're there.

Do you want to better relationships with your friends, partners, and family members? Would you like to be able to handle conflict better? Do you want to be able to win arguments? Do you want to have an influence on others? Do you want to learn skills to help you move up the corporate ladder? Are you interested in how film, television, and technology influence society?

If you are interested in these all-important talents, then you should be a Communication Studies major. Our students report that Communication Studies classes help them build stronger relationships and understand their social world better.

We don't just teach you about work; we teach you about life.
