A Career Guide for the Communication Major
By providing students with a broad liberal arts education, concentrating on the development of critical communication skills and knowledge, the Communication major prepares graduates for work in media and other industries, in government, or for graduate and professional schools. The program is also designed to enhance understanding of the functions and complexity of communication forms that, in part, structure everyday life. The curriculum for the Communication major balances the two primary areas of the discipline: rhetoric and mass communication. In cooperation with the Department of Political Science, a program leading to a major in Governmental and Political Reporting is available. In cooperation with the Department of English and the College of Liberal Arts, a program leading to a major in Print Media will be available for the 1997/98 academic year. An interdisciplinary certificate in Film Studies, coordinated through the Department of Communication, will also be offered.
