Communication

Communication skills are essential to success. John Jay students will develop an understanding of how to execute clear, effective communications in their professional and personal lives. While writing and speaking are key components, we also recognize the importance of attentive listening and reading comprehension – and we are committed to helping students develop those capabilities.

Students who have achieved competency in the essential skill of communication:

  • Will demonstrate an ability to write and speak with intention and precision.
  • Will exercise proper use of grammar and syntax.
  • Will have an understanding of how their messages are received, and be able to adjust language, tone, and presentation to best reach a variety of audiences through appropriate methods of delivery.
  • Will approach communication as a two-way channel, challenging themselves to listen, read, and observe for optimal understanding.
