Connecting Communication to Success

The common denominator for every successful organization is effective communication. As the perfect complement to any major, the Guilford College Organizational Communications minor examines how organizations design and leverage communication processes to optimize performance.

Research indicates that specific knowledge of internal and external communication processes is important for managers and employees at all levels. In this minor, you’ll study how to positively impact organizational outcomes, employee morale and teamwork.

Courses draw upon theory and research from several social sciences, with multiple practical applications to organizational communication and resource management. Students engage in a variety of group projects to better understand how to encourage individual contributions to projects in workplaces and community organizations.

You’ll also learn how to adapt communication approaches for colleagues, supervisors, and interdependent work teams while learning to be more effective as an individual, manager, or team member.
