Communication Skills Program
The Communications Skills Program (CSP) is a sequence of nine courses running through all four years of instruction. Students normally are required to take eight of the courses: four in the University Core and four communications-intensive courses in their major fields or closely related areas of study.
Because communications skills are a concern during every semester and in every major, Robert Morris students have the time necessary to develop proficiency in reading and interpreting, writing, speaking, listening, making presentations using appropriate software, developing skills in cross cultural and multicultural group dynamics, and applying rhetorical skills to each discipline.
The Communications Skills Program courses equip Robert Morris graduates for a competitive, multicultural, professional environment, and satisfy employer needs for employees prepared to meet the demands of a diverse and interconnected global economy.
The program builds a real world advantage for the Robert Morris graduate. The University believes this program moves Robert Morris graduates years ahead of their peers in terms of experience that will be most valuable to them on the job and in graduate studies.
