The communication studies major begins with a traditional liberal arts perspective, infuses an international/intercultural perspective, and then focuses on practical application of communication knowledge and skill. The major is intended for students who wish to be at home in a wide range of situations and cultures and who value the role of communication in creating effective relationships locally and globally. The major is also an effective foundation for advanced study (academic or professional). Students must complete the communication foundation courses prior to acceptance into the communication studies major.
