A Communication major will prepare you for a career in many areas, including business, journalism, public relations, media, nonprofit, government, law, and education. 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. Our students have gained hands-on experience in public relations, radio and TV production, marketing, human resources, and event planning.
