Leadership Communication

Student presents a poster at the annual research presentation

Effective communication is a necessary part of everything you do at home, play, and work. Your ability is dependent on a particular skill set and various competencies that fit the demands of the situation along with organizational abilities, time-management skills, critical thinking, and the ability to make good decisions; being an effective communicator is central to these important activities.

Within Leadership Communication, there are several distinct disciplines such as technology, critical listening, intercultural, interpersonal, small group, mass communications, organizational, political, rhetorical, and environmental communication.

Other programs and courses include journalism, film criticism, persuasion, public relations, political science, radio, television, film production, and computer-mediated communication.
