Communication through a variety of media is central to the missions of all professions, corporations and enterprises; PhilaU’s B.S. in Professional Communication provides the tools necessary to tell the stories of each organization and its services.
As part of our program, students learn how to integrate the latest social media technology with more traditional communication media to develop a flexible toolkit that can be applied to a variety of positions. Students also benefit from our interdisciplinary approach that combines writing, visual design, marketing and public relations.
Our innovative courses reflect the changes the communications industry has undergone, and our students acquire practical skills through multiple internships and study abroad experiences.
Professional communication graduates have gone on to work in a variety of positions in the communications field, from marketing coordinators and studio managers to copywriters and web entrepreneurs. As the field rapidly expands and changes, our program prepares graduates to excel in emerging new careers.
