In this blended communication and marketing program, you’ll gain the skills to convey internal and external messages in a variety of communication and business settings. You’ll explore communication forms ranging from public address, multimedia, interpersonal communication, small group communication and intercultural communication, to organizational communication. You’ll also practice skills in utilizing fundamental
business practices—marketing and management—to effectively create, present and evaluate messages to others.
Take the opportunity to learn about other communication and media tools by taking a course in digital photography or video production.
You'll build even more knowledge through a communication internship and the opportunity to experience the communication of other cultures.
“My ‘Cabin Fever’ course is offered each year during January. I rent a luxury, 6-bedroom cabin in the Ozarks and students live together for a week. This course gives you the chance to learn in a first-hand way about how to communicate and interact with a diverse, small group of individuals.”
Mark Hamilton, EdD
Professor of Communication.
