Communication is an essential element of the human experience. At every level–from one-to-one interaction to public speaking contexts involving thousands–it is communication that creates the point of connection between human beings. Communication skills are essential to personal, academic, and professional success. In particular, those who acquire good communication skills have brighter career prospects, given that employers continually identify the ability to communicate well as a key factor in decisions about hiring, as well as promotion and advancement.

The University of La Verne had amazing and hands-on professors. The academic staff was always reliable and genuinely caring. The biggest problem I had with the university was their tuition costs and how little financial aid was offered to help balance the costs.
I like program and class groups, my experience is very good in overal.
I think the program of Public Relations and Media studies is very well structured and organized. I think it is a perfect combination of theory and practical knowledge gained through group work and projects. The professors are easily approachable and always there to help.
