What can you do with a degree in Communication?
When thinking about possible career
choices in the field of communication it is important to know the
wide range of positions
available to those in the field. Graduates in communication may find employment in a
variety of professional settings which include public relations, government, personnel
management, and in-house training. Some specific areas include recruiter, teacher,
mediator, journal editor, advertising specialist, creative director, media planner,
marriage counselor, editor, realtor, organizational trainer, reporter, curator, public
relations officer, manager, social worker, telecommunications manager, speech writer, and

assessment skills I gained from this program that I was able to secure a job
two weeks before graduation."
