Writing clearly, speaking effectively, and making a cogent argument are useful in virtually every field and in all aspects of life. Mastery of communication gives students a competitive edge in gaining employment in fields such as business, law, and media—anywhere writing and critical thinking skills are required. The ability to communicate effectively is a lifelong skill that gives students the power to inform, persuade, inspire, and foster change.
The communication and rhetoric major at Nazareth College prepares students to become effective communicators in spoken, written, and visual forms.
