With a Communication Studies degree, you will develop the skills necessary to communicate effectively in personal and professional relationships. The ability to clearly communicate ideas and foster collaboration are critical in all areas of life, and excellent communicators are highly sought-after by organizations large and small.

At UNK, passionate professors dive deep into core concepts such as how to nurture two-way conversations, cope with conflict, produce and share information and make clear and persuasive presentations of ideas or concerns. Interactive classroom spaces and experiential learning opportunities are essential parts of the communication program.

After completing the program requirements, you'll have a clear understanding of issues facing organizations today and gain the critical thinking skills necessary to craft effective messages from a variety of perspectives and tailor them for different audiences.

Everything that I've learned in this degree has been applicable if not at work then in my personal life. I’ve had such benefit in the ways that I am able to communicate on behalf of myself and my ability to listen, like actively listen to people, and not miss what is trying to be communicated.
