Career - what can you do with a communication degree?
A communication degree prepares students with the competencies employers look for across a wide range of careers. Graduates may pursue careers in areas such as community service, international affairs, law, marketing communications and politics. They also may continue on to graduate or professional schools.
Students majoring in communication have opportunities to gain valuable experience and networking opportunities by participating in internships or being active in student organizations such as the Falcon Forensics Speech and Debate Team, Pi Kappa Delta, Association for Women in Communication, the Public Relations Student Society of America and Falcon Media.
The theoretical and skills-based courses in the communication program enhance the students' understanding and use of communication in public speaking and presentations, argumentation, writing, conflict negotiation, management and persuasion.
