Description Offers students an opportunity to apply knowledge and skills gained through their organizational communication master’s program to challenging short-term projects under faculty supervision. Students are matched with discipline-specific consulting projects provided by a wide range of sponsoring organizations in the private and nonprofit sectors. Offers students an opportunity to develop a project plan, conduct research, develop and deliver recommendations to the sponsoring organization, and reflect on “lessons learned.” Mapping organizational communication concepts and skills to the consultative process is a primary learning outcome. Requires an application process. This is a capstone course. Students with less than two years of professional communication-related experience must successfully complete a noncredit experiential learning project before registering for the capstone course.
