Why Study Communication?
There are many reasons to consider a degree in communication, but we believe there are three distinct advantages to our program.
- Flexibility and customization: We have a series of core classes and concentration requirements, but there is plenty of room in your schedule to take courses outside the department that cater to your specific areas of interest.
- Practicality: The experience you gain through our class projects, courses, and internships will equip you to be an immediate contributor on the job. Employers love this; trust us.
- Diversity: This is a diverse discipline featuring three distinct concentrations within the major. You can learn the skills of a communication generalist or a specialist—the choice is up to you. We have the courses and faculty to help with both options.
This list represents a sampling of the wide variety of jobs held by recent graduates of our program.
