The B.S. in communication prepares students to be effective communicators in professional settings. Graduates can expect to find or create jobs in areas such as general corporate management, human resources, marketing, public relations, sports information, and technical communication. Communication graduates may also hold jobs as communication consultants, communication directors, event planners, political campaign leaders, public affairs officers, public information officers, publication designers and editors, speech writers, and online content managers.
The program provides transferable skills by emphasizing communication theory and practice in the creation, development, presentation, and evaluation of coherent messages.
