Tell a story.

Overview

We offer a communication major and minor that lays a foundation in communication theory and practice that will enhance your personal, civic and professional life. Nearly every industry looks for strong communicators, who excel at writing, speaking and researching. Your career options include journalism, broadcasting social media, public relations, politics, law, ministry, business and more.

Gain on-campus communication experience through working in offices, joining the student-run newspaper or lending your skills in the podcast studio. In the community, you’ll partner with local non-profits to develop communication tools and resources like social media plans, marketing materials and volunteer management. During your senior year, you’ll complete a capstone project to demonstrate your career readiness. This allows you to build a portfolio and earn hands-on, real-life experience that helps you land your first job out of college.
