Whether you’re writing, teaching, working with clients, or disseminating information to the public, our program will provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary for professional achievement.
Real-world professional experience is critical to student success, so all communication majors are required to complete at least one internship. You’ll work a minimum of 120 hours during the semester and earn three hours of academic credit.
