Across all industries, employers consistently rank communication skills at the top of the most important qualities of incoming professionals. When students major in Communication at Seton Hall University, they study, practice and master those very qualities, including speaking and writing persuasively, researching effectively, interviewing successfully, and working productively in interpersonal, intercultural and team environments. Our program is fully accredited by the American Communication Association.
