Why do you enjoy teaching Communication?

I love teaching communication studies because what we explore in class directly translates to how we live our lives. We use communication to negotiate our relationships, to make the world a better place, to express ourselves, and to form our identities. Studying communication provides opportunities to explore who we are in the world and how we present ourselves.

What is your favorite thing about UNK?
