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 mentally flexible and can best meet the rapidly changing future. Within the Communications 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 three areas of specialization are leadership, public relations, and international communications. For students who do not decide to major in Communications but understand the need for these practical skills, academic minors are available in Communications, Public Relations, and Leadership.
