Communication is about telling a story. The liberal arts emphasis at Asbury University means our goal is not just to educate students to perform a job, but that we strive to grow students intellectually so that they are creative, mentally flexible and can best meet the rapidly changing future. Within the Communication major, all students will benefit from a core of classes to help them become mature communicators, but they can also choose an area of specialization that will allow them to explore their own talents on a deeper level as well as focus their major to best match their future vocations. The four areas of specialization are leadership, public relations, social media, and international communication. For students who do not decide to major in Communication but understand the need for these practical skills, academic minors are available in Communication, Public Relations, Social Media, and Leadership.
