Welcome to the Communication Department

candid

The Communication Department offers four exciting programs to prepare students for a career in a variety of communications fields. For instance, if you are interested in human services, we offer a concentration in Interpersonal/Relational Communication.

For those students looking forward to careers in management, both profit or nonprofit, we offer a concentration in Organizational Communication. Both these concentrations are also paths to graduate study.  If you are interested in a career in the creative end of advertising, we offer a concentration in Advertising and Promotions. Budding filmmakers and content creators might want to explore our Film, Television, & Digital Production concentration.

The communication major offers more than just programs and courses. Our faculty members have a balance of academic credentials and professional experience to help you integrate theory with practice. Our classrooms are high tech, and our media production facilities are first rate and provide students with the opportunity for extensive hands-on experience. Our department clubs and organizations, such as the American Advertising Federation, offer the opportunity to take field trips and learn about the advertising world. The required internship provides students with insight into what it is like to work in a particular job. Finally, our department sponsors events such as Crossroads in Communication, where current students meet with alumni who work in the communication fields, to help you gain insights about your future career and to help you get started with career networking.

If you are a prospective major, you should know that our department prides itself on being student oriented. Our faculty members understand how important it is to make time to advise you about your course choices and your career plans. We are here to help you succeed.

If you are looking for a place to prepare for a job in the communication fields, the Communication Department at Southern Connecticut State University offers a variety of opportunities to help you prepare for the career of your choice.
