Professional Communications at Lehman College

The Professional Communications (PC) minor grew out of student need to translate academic skills into a variety of both academic and professional contexts in private and public sectors.

Formerly the Program for Professional Communications (PPC), the PC minor is interdisciplinary and is of particular interest to majors within the Schools of Arts and Humanities, Social and Natural Sciences, and Nursing and Health Sciences.

PC minors graduate knowing the importance of communication in any business context. The minor also signals to employers their verbal and written skills, and helps students articulate their value in any field of their interest.
