Organizational Communication

The Organizational Communication program explores effective and participatory communication across business and organizational settings.

Your courses will focus on both theory and practice. You will learn how to think, speak and write clearly - and how to act as an ethical communicator with confidence. And you will also begin to understand the multicultural character of communication in contemporary workplaces and society.
