A Communication Degree provides you with the knowledge and skills necessary to design, manage, and evaluate communication processes involving individuals, groups, and the public. We expect you to develop strong oral, written, and interpersonal communication skills as well as critical thinking skills.
COM majors have many career options after graduation. Many of our alumni hold positions in the following areas or positions: lawyer, sales, marketing manager, business manager, non-profit administration, hospital administration, human resources, researcher, politics, media, and many more. To see examples of our alumni "success stories," view our "Alumni Spotlight" page.
This major provides the opportunity to learn critical thinking skills, problem-solving techniques and research analysis, which gives our students the flexibility to choose their own career options. These skills are fundamental in a variety of careers and provide our majors with the ability to work with their adviser in selecting courses (and a cognate area) that will build towards a future career. Click on the title above to see example career paths or check out the below video for a recent conversation with our Dean, the Director of The Graduate Program in Communication and other community leaders who chose Communication as their focus in college and beyond.
