Communication at Aquinas

Although everyone is born with the means to communicate, communication ability, like any talent, must be developed. The communication curriculum at Aquinas was designed with that in mind.

Classes demand thoughtful inquiry, critical thinking, problem solving skills and active participation. Communication is one of the fastest growing disciplines at Aquinas.

Communication Lab
Opportunities for students to practice public speaking, work on speech related assignments, and gain immediate feedback from a trained upper-level communication major.


Communication majors learn skills that employers seek in classes and internships. Our communication graduates hold leadership positions in healthcare, law, the arts, education, and the non-profit sector.

Four distinct communication major tracks are offered and tailored to career objectives, including a Business Administration and Communication Dual Major and the major can be completed just at night
