COMM 4020 - Communication in Professions and Organizations

In this course, students study the field of communication past and present. Career options, communication-related industries, and communication specialties, serve as the core content for this course. Students are exposed to current issues, developments, and trends in the communication field. Students study various communication topics and the scope of activities related to training and development, PR and marketing, consulting, leadership functions, coaching and mentoring, alternative dispute resolution, global perspectives, and the role of e-communication in the 21st century. Ethics related to the field of communication are also explored. Potential areas of interest and growth become more conceivable to students, and serve as the foundation for special projects used to contrast communication functions of the past and future.
