Communication events are examined intrapersonally, didactically, in small groups, in organizations, across cultures and in public settings.Students probe events as media-bound occurrences, studying the verbal, nonverbal, oral or written, live or mass media nature of communication. In addition to academic study in the discipline, communication students can learn more about themselves, become more socially adept and increase their marketability to employers.
Communication majors at George Washington University often play a leading role in student government and become active in extracurricular activities. Leadership roles include president of the University Honors Program Council, president of the Interfraternity Council, editor of The Hatchet, or manager of WRTV radio.
The career outlook for students is highly promising. GW communication students have served as interns in business, entertainment and political organizations. Many have advanced to graduate, law or medical school or have found employment with the White House speech-writing staff, Fortune 500 companies and major advertising and public relations firms.
