Communications: Corporate and Community Relations Major
Strong communication is one of the top skills organizations are looking for in potential employees. We communicate with others every day — verbally and in writing — and it is essential to be clear and concise.
Our Communications program focuses on developing these critical skills to help students become confident in the workplace and their daily lives. Students can expect to apply what they learn in the classroom to their work with nonprofit organizations as they assess surveys and questionnaires, analyze what is working for the organization and determine areas for improvement. We focus on giving our students real-life, professional experience so they will be able to properly communicate results before entering the workplace.
