What Can One Do With a Major in Communication?

Career options in communications are varied. Those seeking careers in the field of communications will find opportunities in advertising, book publishing, magazine publishing, newspaper publishing, television, radio, electronic media and public relations.

Abderrahim Agnaou's insight:

Gradautes of communication should have a deep understanding of why people communicate they way they do in various formats and contexts. Students may choose to further and consolidate their knowledge in specific areas in communication, so they can choose one of the two concentrations offered at AUI: "Professional Communication" or "Media Production" through specific course work, carefully chosen internships, volunteer experiences and part-time work experiences.

 

Employers seek a number of transferable transversal skills that students majoring in Communication Studies are supposed primarily to have: Speaking, Writing, Reading, Critical thinking, Problem analysis, Information gathering, Persuading, Accurate reporting, Ability to clarify and respond, Effective use of language, Good listening skills, and other related skills.

Communication Studies majors are likely to find employment in many sectors and industries such as government, business, not-for-profit organizations, education, manufacturing and politics. Note, however, that some careers may require additional education or experience.

Within the court system there are, occasionally, people who are unable to speak or understand the English language.

That can present a challenge. A defendant has the right to a fair trial, but to achieve that he or she needs to understand what it being communicated.

To enable that communication in cases of non-English speakers, the 2nd Judicial District retains interpreters who translate for both the defendant and the rest of the court.
