Communications Major Bachelor of Arts
Hands-on experience begins as soon as freshman year with access to a campus cable TV station, a FM radio station and a student newspaper.
We set our graduates up for success — they take a professional development course along the way to learn how to sell themselves in interviews with potential employers.
We have alumni who are business owners, teachers, lawyers, communication managers and ad execs. A communication degree can take you many places — just tell us where you want to go!
We have five different clubs. FIVE. Interested in public relations? Check out PRSSA! Broadcast journalism? Check out NBS! We also have AdPro (advertising), Lambda Pi Eta (national communication honors society) and the Communication Board (communication majors and minors).
The student-run station features student-produced programming, class projects, coverage of major campus events and information about the Erie community.
Students are assigned as editors and writers to deliver a weekly online and print newspaper featuring hard-hitting news, feature stories, sports, editorials, opinion pieces, polls, photography and advertising.
Our grads have been hired by The New York Times, the U.S. Army, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Busch Gardens, JP Morgan, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, iHeartMedia, and Estee Lauder.
