Communication Major

Perhaps no single profession is challenged in the same way as the field of communication. New technologies change at lightning speed, and news reaches around the world in an instant - definitely not for the faint of heart, yet a truly exciting time to explore a career in communication.

Who would have thought a few years ago that a position such as social media strategist or satellite radio producer would be available? Yet, those are real careers today and you will be well prepared with the skills necessary for these exciting jobs - and those that have yet to arise.
