The interconnectedness of the global society is rich with opportunity for those who are strong communicators. A communications major is designed to teach effective communication and its application to various fields of work and relationships. Coursework for this major could lead a student to a career in media studies, but will also equally prepare students for a career in business, sales, marketing, education, or politics and public administration. Communication is a suitable major or minor for anyone whose career will require them to interact with people from various walks of life, backgrounds, or careers.
