About

All organizations - both profit and non-profit - need communicators. Successful men and women in this field rise to senior level management, participate in major decisions, and are an integral part of the strategic planning process. A communication specialist might be called on to announce a new product, plan a national or international conference, appear on television as the spokesperson for the corporation, or become involved with special events, press conferences, media plans, video production, or writing and editing newsletters. Many communication graduates also go on to graduate study in such areas as law, business, or communication.
