Human Communication Studies

Every aspect of human behavior is driven by communication, and any interaction can find its success or failure in proper communication. In fact, excellent communication skills are at the top of the list of skills desired by employers, studies show.

The Indiana Wesleyan University Human Communication Studies major provides comprehensive preparation in Christ-centered communication theory and practice, preparing you for a wide variety of careers or graduate study. Graduates are equipped for communication excellence in personal and professional life, ministry, and public and community service.

Because occupational studies consistently show that all employers, regardless of profession, place oral and written communication skills at the top of the list of what they look for when hiring, a Communication Studies major or minor is an excellent complement to any other area of study. In today's highly competitive job market, it is important for graduates to stand out from the crowd. A major or minor in Human Communication Studies can help you do just that.
