Understand. Relate. Influence.

The nationally-ranked Communicology (COMG) program at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa focuses on human communication processes and functions. Our curriculum is organized around three focal topic areas: creating understanding, relational communication, and persuasion/social influence. We also have a strong emphasis on intercultural communication. Students in our program learn to read, interpret, and manage social dynamics; discern and respond effectively to people’s motivations and emotions; write compelling arguments; read and interpret data; create appeals that motivate people; and construct appropriate and effective responses to others’ communication.
