Here's a proven formula: strong written, verbal and interpersonal skills = success.
Whatever career track you choose, you'll need proven communication skills to show people you have credibility – you know what you're talking about.
That's one reason the undergraduate program in Communication is one of the largest programs in the College of Arts and Sciences. Another is the excellence in teaching for which we're known around the country, thanks to the successes of our graduates.
But strong communication skills aren't just about business success. They're about connecting with family, friends and strangers. The more we connect clearly with each other, the more our quality of life is improved, for the more we learn to communicate with each other, the more we become linked to the world.
As a student here, you'll learn the fundamentals and techniques that give effective communication the power to inform and to persuade.

"The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in the relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it."
