You will learn about communication processes in a wide variety of contexts. You will also work with your advisor to tailor your major to prepare for professional or graduate school or for a career in media, communication in organizations, public relations, rhetoric, or another field.
You will get to know your professors in our small, relaxed classes, and your professors will get to know you and your interests. The result is that course projects and activities are designed with those interests in mind.
Finally, the benefits of your liberal arts education will be complemented by the career emphasis of your internship experiences. You will take advantage of internship opportunities during the January Short Term and throughout the year to explore career paths in communication.
