Students take between three to five courses taught by faculty in the Department of Humanities and Communication.

With technical knowledge but no understanding of how to set goals, negotiate conflict, and communicate, a student is likely to experience less success than those who learn how to interact with others. Thus, the program offers instruction in teamwork, ethics, and cross-cultural understanding.

Courses offered significantly add to students' career options. Courses like Technical Writing are essential to many students who work in engineering fields. Other Humanities and Communications courses – such as History of Rock and Roll, Digital Media Storytelling, or Art of the Classical World – offer students a chance to learn something interesting and enhance their quality of life.
