Career Paths

Recent Department of Communication graduates, who combined a program of relevant elective courses from throughout the university, have been successful in securing employment and pursuing career goals. Communication majors from recent graduating classes now hold responsible positions in government and public affairs, in management, marketing, and public relations within private business, and in television and mass media organizations. Many others are successfully pursuing further education in graduate and professional schools.
