This highly desired major allows students to explore the various ways human beings interact and exchange ideas. Students analyze the process of creating, sending and interpreting verbal and nonverbal messages and how these messages are influenced by gender, culture and ethics. Courses cover ideas and theories on how to build effective and appropriate relationships and gain cooperation with others. Communication across several contexts such as organizational, intercultural, and social media are studied. Students gain a sophisticated skill set in research, writing and presentations that will aid in students' admissions into graduate schools and management positions.
Communication and Social Interaction is a popular major for students interested in a wide variety of careers including management, law, higher education, speech writing, political communication, human resources, sales, advertising, marketing, public relations, entrepreneurship, training and recruitment.
