Communication, Culture and Community
The Communication, Culture and Community concentration helps students develop a critical understanding of communication across the dimensions of race, ethnicity, nationality, ability, gender, age and sexual orientation and prepares students seeking careers that focus on the ability to communicate effectively within and across cultures in a diverse society.
Intercultural skills are increasingly necessary for every profession, but they are central to careers in human resources, non-profit and governmental administration, advocacy, arbitration and community organizing. This concentration can lead to careers in these fields, including:
|Multicultural Marketing||Patient Advocacy|
|Diversity Officer||Community Organizing|
|Human Resources||Negotiation and Arbitration|
