Communication Major

As a Communication major at Rosemont, you'll be prepared for a rapidly changing work landscape. With a strong emphasis on professional speaking and writing fluency, the Communication major also focuses on mass media and other relevant skills.

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 you with a core foundation of professional communication practices.

Careers for Communication Majors

Learn about the creativity of an advertiser, the objectivity of a journalist, multi-tasking as a public relations practitioner, or the oral delivery of a broadcaster. Upon graduation and completion of a 3 credit internship, you'll have a well-rounded portfolio to show to future employers. As a Communications student at Rosemont, you have the opportunity to do a dual degree with the School of Graduate and Professional Studies and graduate with a BA in Communication and an MA in either Publishing or an MFA in Creative Writing.

Where Our Students Have Interned

As with all our majors, Communication students are encouraged to take internships, study abroad, and partake in a variety of experiential learning opportunities. Rosemont students have interned at MilkBoy Recording, Viacom, Clear Channel, Wired 96.5 FM, and NEWS-Line Publishing, among many other top media organizations.
