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 more. Students are also prepared for graduate studies in communication as well as a number of other graduate and professional programs.

"It is because of the facilitation and assessment skills I gained from this program that I was able to secure a job two weeks before graduation." - Carly Turnbull.
