With courses in interpersonal communication, conflict and communication, persuasion, human communication and the internet, health communication, nonverbal communication, women and leadership communication, intergroup dialogue, and public communications, Communication Studies offers a range of practical courses of value to majors or as a supplement to many other degrees.
