The Communication and Journalism Department programs prepare students for a fast-paced, ever-changing job market. Students in our department gain valuable industry-like experience with hands-on activities with state-of-the-art technology.

Our Communication students join a wide array of professional organizations after graduation primarily due to the unique applied skills they develop within the program. Many of our students work at local or regional corporations and non-profits in communication, public relations and administrative roles.  Additionally, many other students work for advertising/PR firms.  A number of our graduates have gone on to complete Master and even Ph.D. degrees.  Journalism students also take positions in PR/Marketing and Advertising, as Web Designers and Social Media specialists, and as professional journalists in print, broadcast, online and other electronic outlets.
