As you explore with us, you will surely discover that the study of communication has great practical value, in every avenue and aspect of life. Employers rank communication competencies as the most desirable qualifications of prospective employees. Deep understanding—and conscious practice—of high quality communication determines our ability to participate in civic, social, family, work, and personal relationships.
