Parents of prospective students often ask me the same question: What kind of job can you get with a communication degree?
As the director of our undergraduate programs, I often respond that the possible answers are many, diverse, and can be highly rewarding. I created this wordle display for the Knight School of Communication website on some of the types of jobs that communication majors might seek upon college graduation:
Opportunities in communication fields are quickly growing and often tied to the innovative communication technologies in both traditional and digital media. Yet, employers report that the most important skills are the abilities to speak and write with skill and grace in an ethical way. Those skills, taught by communication programs across the nation, can be applied to a wide variety of jobs, careers and vocations.
