Strategic Relationship Maintenance Concentration
B.A. in Communication Studies
The Strategic Relationship Maintenance Concentration prepares students to excel in personal, professional, and public life by developing skills for improving relationships, connecting with others, and diagnosing communication problems. They will study interpersonal communication and its dynamics and how they constitute relationships. Relationships are the core of human experience and understanding how to successfully develop and maintain them is a critical life skill. All careers require the ability to listen and communicate effectiely, and our students will learn how messages, meetings, and media work together in oral, written, and non-verbal contaxts to refine their ability to assess the relationship and their own part in it.
