Organizational Communication Sequence | Communication Division | Seaver College | Pepperdine University

Organizational Communication Sequence

In today's environment, organizations face challenges of increasing reliance on technology, merging industries, issues of sustainability, and international globalization. This creates greater needs for organizational members to respond with creativity and learning, ethics and social responsibility, and balanced approaches to uncertainty and complexity. Organizational communication majors learn how to communicate effectively, creatively, and mindfully in this setting.

Students learn how to write clear business memos and reports, present persuasive corporate presentations, participate in and lead team discussion and decision making, manage organizational conflict, shape leadership initiatives, cultivate organizational culture, develop systems that fulfill mission statements, analyze communication effectiveness, conduct training and development, and create organizational change. Our focus at Pepperdine is to create people who will become positive change agents for every conceivable type of organization.

Student Opportunities

Real World Experiences

At Pepperdine we don't just talk about communication; we provide you an opportunity to practice what you're learning. You can begin this learning your freshman year.

Each semester our communication majors write, direct, and produce entertainment television programs in our media and film production studio. Other students host radio programs, compete on our debate team, and participate in writing, editing, and designing our weekly print newspaper and daily online newspaper.

Our experiential learning opportunities encourage you to learn as you experience the "real world." This is experience that not only looks great on a resume, but also puts you ahead of other students when competing for similar jobs.
