Program Description

Communication is a discipline that teaches vital skills for success in today's society and provides professional preparation in communication fields. Communication provides the link for using all other technical skills and knowledge acquired in one's lifetime. Few assets are more valuable to a career or community than a basic understanding of the dynamics of communication.

Communication is an area of study that is not limited to public speaking. Communication includes the study of how people interact in relationships and groups as well as public presentation situations. The course of study offered at NIC gives students the opportunity to explore a variety of areas in communication.
