Elevate Your Opportunities to Connect

Pursue your dream career in international relations, communication studies, foreign service, travel and tourism, journalism, public relations, corporate communication, or other fields where broad knowledge of the world and strong communication skills are vital.

"I have a power when it comes to writing. I wanted to share other people's stories because their stories deserve to be told."

- Amy Enberg, FSW Student and Future Journalist

Humanities focuses on the particular historical periods, media, or themes, and examines the relationship between different types of cultural production (art, literature, drama, music, film, etc.), society, politics, and history. 

Communication involves the academic study and practice in the use of written, verbal, and nonverbal communication to effectively interpret and produce information for internal and external publics. This pathway provides graduates with tools critical to communicating effectively in an ever-changing global workplace. Effective communication skills are essential for every field of work and this pathway is a strong building block to develop these skills.
