A University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown communication degree enables students to develop disciplined, informed thinking; communication skills; problem-solving skills; strategies for information access; respect for the views of others; and a lifetime love of learning.
Working with faculty mentors, students develop research, thinking, writing, speaking, listening, team-building, and leadership skills.
Students study the processes of interaction in a variety of contexts, cultures, and styles, and develop the ability to interact ethically, confidently, and effectively in an increasingly diverse society.
