This space is inadequate to describe at length the wealth of possibilities a student could pursue with a communication degree. Though most majors aid students in improving their communication skills, this post will address career possibilities with majors in Baylor’s Department of Communication:
Communication Studies (formerly Speech Communication)
It should be noted that the Communication Specialist major combines coursework from Communication Studies and Film and Digital Media. Students who are interested in the Communication Specialist major would be wise to check out careers that relate to both components of the major.
As I mentioned above, selecting a communication major opens up a wide variety of career options. Think about it. Most jobs require a person to communicate effectively, whether it means expressing oneself verbally, in writing, or in other forms. Some nice starting points for information are the resources on the Career Counseling website related to choosing a major. Additionally, a podcast is available for each of the three majors listed above.
Some of the more common occupations you will read or hear about in these resources are in business, media, law, social services, nonprofit, government/politics, and education. Truly, the possibilities are endless, which is a nice feature for students seeking a major and career that offers variety.
