GWC - Communication

The Communication Studies Transfer major focuses on how people construct, use, and interpret messages across multiple channels to inform, persuade, manage, relate, and generally influence each other within and across varying cultural venues. Emphasis is also placed on identifying and valuing disparate systems of social norms and values that influence the human communicative process. Students will learn and understand the various theoretical and pragmatic skills that enable them to navigate social interaction within multiple interpersonal, small group, public, and intercultural contexts. Students will thus become familiar with both field-specific nomenclature as well as effective oral, listening, and critical thinking skills needed to manage effectively communication encounters in diverse social environments. Students will be prepared for a baccalaureate degree in communication studies, Speech Communications, or a similar degree.
