Studying Communications is a great option that allows for many, many kinds of potential jobs. I studied communication and have spent my career using that degree in the nonprofit sector through marketing, public relations, social media, development, grant writing, event planning, etc. I have many colleagues who studied communications who have gone on to work for PR agencies, Marketing/Advertising agencies, professional sports organizations and more. Studying communications can open many doors for you and be helpful in many fields. As you advance in your communication studies, it's likely that an industry or subject area will be very interesting for you, and that can help guide your decision about what sort of communication-related career you are interested in.
Betsy recommends the following next steps:
- Take Communication Classes and declare it as a major if available.
- Get to know your communication professors - oftentimes they are the key to your getting a great internship or recommendation as you're looking for a job.
- Identify areas of communication that interest you so that you can narrow down potential internship or job options.
