Communication Male Student In Studio

Without communication, individuals would not be able to interact with others and communities would come to a standstill. 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. Through high-impact classroom practices and research, the Communication program at Capital explores all aspects of communication.
