Understand core communication concepts and theories about conflict, gender, interpersonal relationships, intercultural and organizational communication - then apply them in a wide variety of contexts and vocations
Communication drives our world
Built upon the framework of the five most sought after employment skills in both for profit and nonprofit arenas, Malone's Communication Arts program will allow you to master a skill set focused on effective speaking, strong and clear writing, teamwork and collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving, and work ethic and professionalism.
Prepare for positions in fundraising, promotion, event planning, advertising, marketing, community affairs, and many more diverse fields as you connect with real clients using knowledge from the classroom.
This concentration allows you to blend storytelling in all of its forms, critical analysis, and practical skills together as you work with other students to produce meaningful theatre productions, films, web pages, and more.
