Communication

We don't just talk about it.

How do you put a thought into words so that others understand it? How do you choose the medium that best serves your message and audience?

As a student in Taylor's communication department, you'll learn to effectively communicate in ways that engage your audience and eliminate distractions. Our programs cover exactly what employers are looking for: leadership, speaking, interpersonal and team-based communication, writing, graphic design, branding, the rhetoric of images, and many other topics. You'll gain the skills necessary to enter any setting—online, in print, or in person; professional or otherwise—and effectively connect with others.

Explore our programs.

Communication students put theory into action through class projects and independent work, including:

  • public relations case campaigns
  • The EchoTaylor's award-winning student newspaper
  • communication audits
  • web site launches
  • book proposals and query letters

We don't just talk about communicating—we do it.
