“Communication is an in-demand skill because while culture and technology change the way we communicate, the need for familiarity and connection remains the same. Communication professionals thrive when they are both adaptable and anchored. A great education will do that, and I know of none better than the Communication Studies / Torrey Honors education I received.”
