Discover Communication at Immaculata University
No matter what stage you are in your career, job openings across the nation always include the caveat: good oral and written communication skills required. This ubiquitous major delves into exciting careers that transcend oral and written skills.
As a communication major you will develop theoretical and practical skills, participate in two valuable internships, and interact with professionals in the field.
Within this major, you will choose from one of three tracks:
- Organizational Communication prepares you to be a successful communicator in the corporate world by combining courses in communication, business, and information technology.
- Public Relations and Journalism strengthens your professional writing skills to prepare you for careers focused on reporting, managing company messages, representing an organization professionally, and handling crises.
- Digital Communication combines traditional communication classes with emerging technologies, social networking, and online media outlets. This track includes two sub-tracks, broadcast media or graphic design.
Several national honor societies recognize the achievements of communication majors. Immaculata offers Alpha Psi Omega (the national honorary dramatic fraternity: IU chapter of Iota Nu); Sigma Tau Delta (international collegiate honor society for students of English: IU chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma); Lambda Pi Eta (national honor society for communication students)
