Today’s world of 24-7 news, self-generated content through social media and an over-abundance of information at our fingertips calls for professionals who can help organizations cut through the noise, and communicate effectively with all stakeholders.
Oregon Tech’s Communication Studies degree is built for creative innovators who want to learn how to reach within and across boundaries of organizations to create change, improve communication and excel in their field. With a unique opportunity to shape the program to fit your interests and career goals, Communication Studies prepares graduates to enter a variety of fields after graduation: management, marketing, public relations, law, government, education, health care, human relations, and all fields in which communication skills are vital.
As participants in the program, students develop and integrate knowledge, creativity, ethical practice, and skills in small classes – with generally 10-15 students – taught by professionally connected professors with real-world experience. Students examine and produce work in oral, written, and visual communication, and practice their skills in group and intercultural communication. There are also externship experiences available for students, as well as the International Media Seminar in Paris, and independent study opportunities for students.
