Global Communication - Minor
School of Communication Studies
201 Taylor Hall
The Global Communication minor is designed to provide graduates with some of the theoretical, practical and cultural sensitivity skills to use communication most effectively in global organizations and environments of all kinds. Globalization is a multi-faceted and irreversible phenomenon in the world today. It is due largely to the increase in the development and use of communication technologies and the global flow of communication and information. The effects of globalization are striking, including changes in industrial, financial, economic, health policy, political, informational and cultural practices.
