Information Sciences and Technology for Communication Arts and Sciences Minor

University Park: College of the Liberal Arts (ISCAS)

The Internet and other technologies are emerging as important communication channels. People establish personal relations online, develop language skills, conduct business, and make arguments online. Web sites have become important sites of public discourse and are playing an encompassing role in political campaigns. Students who pursue careers as communication consultants, in management or human resources, as political speech writers, and as independent business operators need information management skills. As a result, it is essential for Communication Arts and Sciences students to be fully versed in information sciences and technology for both personal and professional advancement.
