Communication


“The English program here at Holy Cross equipped me with the communication skills I need to enhance my professional development. I was able to learn new material that both enriched my love for English Literature and challenged me to learn new perspectives and techniques.”

~ ESTEFANIA LOPEZ ’21 | ENGLISH AND COMMUNICATIONS DOUBLE MAJOR

Communication creates community

Exceptional communication requires more than grammatical proficiency: it requires internalizing important lessons from rhetoric, business, law, theology, and the visual arts, and using those insights to connect in meaningful ways with others.

If you’re interested in using language as a tool to connect and unite, we welcome you with open arms. In the English Major’s Communication Track, you will:

  • Learn from accomplished faculty in intimate classes (our average class size is 14)
  • Participate in an internship before you graduate (100 percent of Holy Cross students intern)
  • Deepen your thinking and communication skills across departments such as English, Business, Marketing, Theology, and the Visual Arts.

No matter which career path you choose, your ability to communicate is vital. Our graduates have thrived in professional settings as diverse as marketing, advertising, law, and education.
