“My Communication education has helped me increase my interpersonal and cross-cultural communication skills. This was necessary for example, as I worked with a human rights nonprofit in rural India last summer, where there was a huge language and cultural barrier,” Taylor said. “I also think it has given me an advantage in my other classes and activities, because this major is so interdisciplinary and has helped me improve a plethora of useful skills, ranging from public speaking to evaluating the ethics of global communication and political situations.”
“I have learned to listen with empathy, plan with creativity, and lead with integrity,” he explained.
“I love journalism because of the opportunity it gives me to hear people’s stories and tell them to the world,” Mohammed said. “There’s so many great stories right here at UW.”
“I have found gratification in participating in various academic, recreational, and philanthropic programs across the UW community,” Della said. “Studying communications has allowed me to explore diverse and broadening subjects that directly apply to real world experiences. I have gained confidence and expertise in my communication skills throughout my husky experience as a result of my degree.”
“Stories are the only possessions that are truly and uniquely ours and it’s been my goal at UW to learn how to tell my own stories effectively and enable others to tell their stories through me,” Enrique explained.
