Technology has significantly changed the way people communicate and no field is as dynamic as Communication Management. We no longer require offices to work, and travel to hold business meetings. Social media has come head to head with traditional media, and publications and readers now engage with one another.
The Bachelor of Science in Communication Management provides theory an practical resources for managing, implementing, enhancing and examining communication styles and practices. The program, designed by professionals in communication and liberal arts, will examine various communication channels and how media, the internet and technology are changing the way we communicate. Students also have the right to challenge for Life Experience credits and apply up to 12 CLEP credits.
