Communication is essential in today’s society. With changes in communication, and shifts toward a digital age, being able to communicate effectively in a variety of platforms is key.

The communications major here at Rosemont is geared toward preparing students for a rapidly changing work environment. Communication courses put a strong emphasis on professional speaking and writing fluency, an understanding of the impact of mass communication, and skills essential for the communications professional.

Courses ask students to apply communication principles in developing multimedia class projects in groups or individually. Students are required to take traditional courses such as Public Speaking, and Journalism. These courses provide students with a core foundation of professional communication practices. 

Academic Opportunities

Students studying communications will be prepared for a variety of careers by being offered a wide variety of courses from diverse communication and media fields. Classes encourage students to apply traditional communication principles and alternative forms of mass communication to multimedia presentations and projects.

Students learn about the creativity of an advertiser, objectivity of a journalist, multi-tasking of a public relations practitioner, and oral delivery of a broadcaster. Upon graduation and completion of a 3 credit internship, students will have a well rounded portfolio to help them impress future employers.

Students in the Dual Degree Program will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and a Master of Arts in either publishing or creative writing in an accelerated format.
