About the Program
The Human Relations concentration develops students’ ability to analyze communication contexts, solve communication difficulties, and build productive relationships-both personal and professional. Courses include those focused on managing conflict, providing support, leading and influencing others, and presenting oneself effectively. Students learn to apply theory to practical problems through their coursework and a capstone internship or research experience. The concentration will help students prepare for a range of career options that require communication and “people” skills, including management, human resources, training and development, sales, social services, and counseling. It is also excellent preparation for law school or other graduate education.

Three Year Major
The Brian Lamb School of Communication now offers all five majors in schedules that can be completed in just three years. These new schedules have the same number of total hours (120), and the same number of major hours (42 or 30), but compress them into three years. The three-year plan requires two summers, with the following distribution of semester hours (fall/spring/summer):
Year One: 15/18/9
Year Two: 18/18/9
Year Three: 18/15/graduation in May
These new three-year plans are in addition to the existing four-year programs, which will all still be available. Of course, if students enter the program with any Advanced Placement or transfer credit, meeting the three-year calendar becomes even simpler.
See the Program Requirements and Supplemental Information for 2016-17 Human Relations-3 Year Plan and visit the Brian Lamb School of Communication website for more information.
