Communication Major and Minor
The Seaver College communication major prepares students to excel as communicators, whether in the domestic professional sphere, the non-profit sector, or the international business world. Our communication degree program teaches students about the related contexts, modes, and media necessary to studying and understanding the process of communication.
Communication majors have the option to choose between four sequences:
Communication Minor in Rhetoric and Leadership
Our rhetoric and leadership minor prepares students to be leaders in the community, politics, law, business, church, and more. We focus on learning to craft, create, and deliver persuasive messages to audiences. Students develop a diverse set of skills that enable them to seek careers in the business, education, government, law, religion, and nonprofit sectors.
Communication Minor in Speech Communication
Our speech communication minor is for students who realize that their future success as leaders—regardless of their career choice—depends on compelling spoken and written messages that educate and inspire audiences. Our students move beyond the basic introduction to speech-making and audience analysis to a deeper understanding of context, history, and rhetorical invention.
