Minor in Communication Studies

Communication Studies (CM) can be the ideal minor for the student who is looking to build a successful career on a foundation of oral communication skills. Communication Studies offers a practical study of the principles and mechanisms of human interaction: How can the student be most persuasive? How can the student become an effective, respected leader? How can the student understand, avoid, and, when necessary, resolve conflict? More than persuasive leaders and successful peacemakers, we want our graduates to be members of society who are both productive and ethical. For more information, contact the CM Coordinator, Dr. Katherine Hampsten, khampsten@stmarytx.edu.
