There is no greater tool in the world than successful communication in all forms—written, spoken and conceptual. The Ohio State University’s School of Communication provides students with the training and skills to harness the power of communication.
Graduates of the Communication program from Ohio State University have a broad knowledge of contemporary communication challenges and are equipped to apply their knowledge and understanding to a variety of practical situations.
Students in new media and communication technology are prepared for careers as managers of technology-based communication campaigns, social media specialists, usability analysts, online content developers, and web and multimedia designers.
Graduates of strategic communication train for careers in business and management or as communication specialists in organizations. They can find employment as public relations specialists, communication campaign and information managers, and communication consultants.
Graduates from the communication analysis and practice area can direct their programs to prepare for careers as communication specialists for media, health and political organizations, as well as for market research positions and personnel management. This focus area can provide preparation for professional schooling in law, business, education or graduate programs in communication.
