Overview

Build expertise in communication

Research shows communication is the most vital skill employers seek in new hires. With a Communication Studies major or minor at Hastings, you’ll build expertise and confidence in your communication skills while discovering how to analyze communication among people and within businesses and organizations. It’s the perfect combination to set you up for a successful career.

Graduate with experience

Communication Studies majors at Hastings College do a lot more than spend time in classrooms. You’ll be out in the community, testing theories you learn in class and the research you conduct with our outstanding faculty. Through these experiences, you’ll make connections and earn a quality internship.

From there you’ll have opportunities to write and present research papers at national conferences, excel as a member of our award-winning communication honorary, Lambda Pi Eta, and participate in activities that demonstrate to employers you have the skills necessary in today’s global and dynamic business environment.

At every step in your path you’ll appreciate the stepping stones of teaching, counseling, inspiring, supporting and guiding from our engaged faculty. It’s an experience that’s true to Hastings College and you won’t find it anywhere else.
