BA in Applied Communication and Culture Leadership

General

Program Description

Overview

The Applied Communication, Leadership, and Culture program explicitly connects the communication skills and leadership training of a Liberal Arts education to successful post-graduation employment. This program is defined by its focus on the transferability of the written, oral and visual communication skills, the critical thinking, and the cultural awareness acquired during a Liberal Arts education to the world beyond academia. Technical skills, work- integrated learning (internships, cooperatives, workplace-generated projects), and career-related mentoring are key components of its design.
