The communication major consists of a core of courses including communication theory and ethics, interpersonal communication, public speaking, journalism, media and culture and organizational communication.
We will help you tailor the major toward your specific goals. A minor may easily be added to the communication major. For instance, students interested in visual communication often complete a minor in art while students who want to work in public relations may minor in business administration.
If you want to supplement a different major with training in communication you may consider a communication minor.
Through classes, departmental activities, internships and other learning opportunities, you will be prepared for a career in print journalism, broadcast journalism, public relations, performance arts, communication consulting, church promotion, higher education, communication research, political communication, public speaking, organizational leadership and more.
