Internship opportunities abound for communications students at many local organizations and media outlets. Students have interned at radio stations, public arts commissions, television stations and advertising agencies, professional sports organizations, among many other sites.
Graduates of the communications program have gone on to work as journalists, lawyers, lobbyists, photographers, sales representatives, publishers, film producers and directors. Since communication skills are needed in virtually all industries, graduates can choose from a wide spectrum of job opportunities. Communications graduates are well-positioned as the digital economy, social networking and the move toward media creation rises to prominence.
Boost your brain power and give yourself a competitive edge in our global economy by pairing your major with a language. St. Scholastica offers programs and courses in American Sign Language, French, German, Latin, Ojibwe, Russian and Spanish.
"I use the information I learned through my Communications major on a daily basis...The structure of an argument and education in rhetoric that the program emphasizes has been of incredible importance. My degree gave me the education to break down arguments, take apart concepts and reconstruct ideas in a manner that fits our purpose."
– Ilsa Peterson, ‘06
