Careers

A degree from the Department of Communication can lead down many career paths. While many of our students continue on to graduate school, others enter the work force with jobs in television, radio, film, Web development, public relations, news, writing, sales, marketing and advertising. In the course of their studies students are exposed to the same technologies that the professionals use. The combination of theory with hands-on practice makes our graduates marketable in today’s challenging economy.
