Communication Studies: Internships & Careers

Graduates from our B.A. in Communication Studies  have gone on to have successful careers in such areas as broadcast journalism, marketing, speech writing, sales and public relations and other communication-related fields. An undergraduate major or minor in Communication Studies is also an asset for careers in law, religion, education, labor relations, politics, marketing and human resource development.

With the help of the Career and Professional Development Center, our department can connect you to potential employers in our region and beyond. The faculty in Communication Studies has worked hard to develop a comprehensive internship program in the department and many of our students have held prestigious internships in the highest levels of government, industry and private enterprise.
