At the Communication program of Capital University, we understand the value of being able to communicate effectively. That's why we offer a broad-based curriculum that covers everything from mass media to theatre and public speaking to public relations.
What you'll learn
The most brilliant thinkers and leaders are irrelevant if they can’t communicate their ideas effectively. A message means nothing if it’s not received with the intended impact. Communication is central to everything we do as human beings — how we interact, inform and persuade, how we express our ideas and our opinions.
At Capital, you will learn how communication is used effectively in debate, electronic media and film, and public speaking. We’ll approach it from diverse perspectives, like performing arts, social sciences and the humanities. And to keep you at the forefront of industry trends, we'll also approach it across media, disciplines and skill sets — from print, film and digital to communication and public relations. Explore the program and course descriptions in our online course bulletin.
You will be exposed to research in the field and will learn to analyze and manage communication in every area of personal, public and professional interaction. When you graduate, you'll understand how human beings create and share meaning with each other and to be able to put that knowledge to good use in their everyday lives.
Many students use our program as a launch pad for law school, MBA programs, professional schools and graduate schools in a variety of social science and humanities disciplines. But not always. In fact, a growing number of undergraduates are attracted to our public relations, theatre studies, organizational communication, and electronic media and film programs. They understand that the world is changing, and they want to be prepared for what lies ahead.
Where you'll go: careers and placements
In addition to the more obvious professional connections to public relations, broadcasting and teaching licensure, excellent communication skills are valued components in leadership positions in business and professional areas. They also serve as an excellent preparatory base for post-graduate education.
