Training to be a comfortable public speaker, presenter, and writer is what being a Communication major is all about, and for those who master these core skills, your career prospects are as promising as they are varied. Many Communication majors enter fields such as teaching, journalism, broadcasting, public relations, and advertising. Those interested in pursuing this discipline as a college major will find premier opportunities for study at leading, prestigious schools such as UPenn, Boston College, and UNC as well as at smaller schools where students with less-than-perfect credentials can earn admission.
