Or you can enter graduate school or many other professional fields equipped with vital skills learned in general communication studies.
Gain journalism experience through Public Eye News, the student-run TV program; produce award-winning video/audio content in professionally equipped studios; create and execute PR campaigns for real-life clients; and work onstage or backstage for five major theater productions per year.
