ACOM 130 - Professional Communications


Effective communication is necessary to professional success. Business leaders consistently report that communication is an essential skill in the workplace. The purpose of this course is to develop and strengthen students’ written and oral communication skills for practical applications in professional contexts. Students gain knowledge of concepts in organizational communication and group communication, learn and practice business writing tasks, make informal and formal presentations, and learn strategies for handling day-to-day challenges in the workplace. Students also self-reflect on issues of personal identity and professional ambition, with the goal of seeing how their values and characters apply to their career paths. Through individual assignments and a major group project, students demonstrate their competence in professional communication. Together, all of these efforts provide a valuable foundation for professional accomplishment in the global marketplace.
