Communication Studies

Courses in the Communication Studies Program are designed to provide an important liberal arts perspective on the process and use of communication. Communication is vital to career and to personal and social relationships. Through studies in intrapersonal, interpersonal, and public communication, students can increase self-understanding and acquire more effective tools with which to participate in society.

Two popular courses in the Communication Studies Program are Intercultural Communication - COM 440, taught by Dr. Lillie Ransom, and Nonverbal Communication - COM 420, taught by Dr. Beth Benedict.  View video descriptions of Intercultural Communication - COM 440 and Nonverbal Communication - COM 420
