The Communication Arts and Sciences program (formerly known as Speech Communication) at Penn State Brandywine Campus is designed to help you develop the skills necessary to communicate effectively in the contemporary work place.

Today's business leaders identify as their greatest need people who can communicate clearly and effectively - with external publics, such as customers and vendors, and with internal audiences, such as other company divisions. Strong communications skills are highly valued in the legal profession, health-related fields, and not-for-profit organizations.

The program is based on the seven skills groups that address workplace needs in the twenty-first century as identified by the American Society for Training and Development.

Professional, academic, and faculty advisers work closely with you to design a program and select courses that meet both degree and work place requirements. With careful planning and course selection, you may minor in Business or other academic areas.
