A 2018 survey by the Association of American Colleges and Universities found that while hiring managers and top executives believe many college grads have the skills for entry-level jobs, only 25-34% (respectively) believe these students have the skills needed for promotion, including skills in communication, team work, and problem solving.

The Department of Communication offers General Education Requirement (GER) courses and an academic Minor. All courses are designed to assist students to:

  • Develop skills employers are looking for when hiring and promoting employees
  • Be able to work in groups/teams more effectively
  • Understand relationships with family, friends, and co-workers
  • Present themselves and their ideas more convincingly
