with concentrations in business and healthcare management
A communications degree is valuable and versatile. Just consider the number of communications channels and information sources we all deal with every day: With social media, mobile technology, and big data, we live in an increasingly information-driven world—and employees are being expected to handle these changes in the way we communicate.
Our communications degree was designed using insights from workforce and industry leaders on what communications skills today’s people-oriented professionals must possess. The degree can be applicable in practically every industry—including healthcare, wholesale, retail, government, manufacturing, life sciences, and many more. Concentrations are available in business and healthcare management.
