Communication and Emerging Media

Communication majors have gone into many different careers. Our graduates have received job offers in newspaper work, magazine publication, public relations, sales, web design, public safety, and broadcasting. Some of our best students have gone to graduate school. Communication is also an excellent major for students who want to pursue advanced professional education such as, for example, law school or seminary.

Opportunities in new media, such as podcasting and digital video production, are developing rapidly. Communication is an excellent major for students interested in professional public speaking, event planning, and organizational consulting.

Skills and experiences gained through co-curricular activities, internships, part-time jobs, and volunteering are critical in shaping a career path. Develop a career goal and seek the right background to become a strong candidate.
