The field of communication involves all the ways in which humans communicate with one another, whether through reading, writing, speaking, singing, or even text messaging. Communication is interested both in how we communicate and how we can communicate better. Understanding our purpose, audience, and topic allows us to best convey our intended message.

The study of any culture and society is enriched by an interdisciplinary use of methods and theories from history, anthropology, sociology, and gender studies. These disciplines illuminate through observations and material data how social groups are formed, and how and why people interact in the way they do in the past and present. The social sciences and humanities are all about asking big questions and discovering practical answers to the various aspects of the human experience.View Culture and Society Courses
The field of ethics is at its heart the philosophical study of right and wrong. Studying ethics helps us understand how to make moral decisions, how to identify ethical dilemmas, and how to make tough choices in a complicated world. Ethical decision making is an important skill in business, health care, the law, and, in fact, all careers. It is also an important skill to possess in one’s personal life.

Mathematics is a science and a language. The field of mathematics is interested in revealing the patterns and relationships that help us understand the world around us. The term mathematics is often used to describe many areas such as number theory, algebra, trigonometry, calculus, statistics, and geometry. These are areas that, through their concepts and formulas, govern numbers, quantities, measures, shapes, and sets.
