Why choose Communication?
This is a great career choice for you if
- You have an innate desire to understand and transform what
you hear into a message you or someone else can benefit
- You have strong verbal and writing skills
- You have a caring, helpful attitude; a desire to teach or
inform; and a never-ending curiosity about what's going on around
A major in Communication offers a wide range of career
opportunities. Many college graduates fit neatly into an occupational niche. Education majors, for
example, generally become teachers. Human Services majors go on to
become counselors. However, for the Communication major the
possibilities are diverse and virtually endless.
Some entry level examples could range from Personnel Recruiter,
Labor Relations Specialist, Speech Writer,
Advertising/Marketing Specialist and Campaign Director to advanced
positions such as Vice-President of Human Resources, Director of
Media Relations, Marketing Vice-President and Director/Dean of
Administrative Offices of a university.
As a Communication major you have a great competitive advantage.
You have more experience in relational and critical thinking skills
than others. It will be up to you to find the niche that best fits
your communication skills. Here at LWC we will provide you
with the tools to help you find that niche.
