Communication is a super broad degree, and that’s the beauty of it. You study communication, but it’s expected that you do something else on the side. For me, that’s music. I’ve related a lot that I’ve learned from Rhetoric and Society and Interpersonal Communication back to music, developing strategies to grow my music, grow other people’s music, and manage and develop my record label.

It helps to have professors who not only know your name, but also understand what and how other professors teach, creating a more unified and diverse department faculty. Dr. Philpott really opened my eyes to the career possibilities I had with a Communications degree. (Don’t tell him, but I aspire to be a communications consultant some time in my life as well.)

Think about double or triple specializing, and maybe even try a class that you’re nervous about. I originally specialized only in Communication Studies but took a Strategic Communication class just to see how I liked it. I ended up loving it, despite being nervous about it at first. Now I’m double-specializing, and I’m so thankful I decided to try that class. Don’t limit yourself to just what you think you may be good at – the great thing about this major is that you can really customize it.

After taking a variety of classes across a multitude of disciplines, I fell in love with communications. I felt inspired by the communication and media theories I was learning about in class because they helped me make meaning of contemporary issues movements developing across the nation. I quickly came to recognize the effects of media on society, and most importantly, I learned to view the art of communications and media as a tool for social change.
