With concentrations in Journalism and Communication Studies, the Communication major produces graduates who understand the powerful role of communication in all aspects of society. The Journalism curriculum prepares students for a variety of employment opportunities in the mass communication and media professions, primarily in the print media and public relations as well as corporate communication. The program stresses practical experience. The student newspaper, yearbook, magazine, and radio station, and the regional PBS-affiliate television station are integrated with class work, and students are encouraged to participate in the internship or co-op program. The concentration in Communication Studies fosters the understanding of the process and practice of communication among individuals, groups, organizations, and cultures. Emphasis is on effective and ethical communication skills for success in virtually all kinds of situations. Students may participate in speech and debate team activities. Upon graduation they are ready to begin careers in business, government, law, education, politics, social and human services, international relations and negotiations, or further study on the graduate level.
