Why choose Communication at UNK?

Understanding how to convey messages is one of the most important skills that people can learn. Employers regularly cite communication skills as one of the most attractive traits in an employee. In the communication department at UNK we work with students to help understand messaging in a variety of ways. We try to help students understand how to be better relational partners, employees and community members by teaching them how to communicate ethically, efficiently and effectively.
