Study Abroad Summer Program
As an undergraduate student, you will receive 6 credit hours (CMST 442 Organizational Communication Processes Dr. Haas and CMST 491 Intercultural Communication Dr. Miller). As a Communication Studies major, these classes will fulfill the requirements of two 400-level electives. Participants will enjoy a deeper understanding of the similarities and differences in communication between the U.S. and Ireland as well as the relationship between culture and communication. Participation in the program is also an excellent resume-builder – both academic and professional.
