Corporate Communication

Corporate communicators are more than just writers; they are highly skilled professionals in the arts of planning, problem solving, and persuading, with a sharp understanding of their audiences' needs, tastes, and interests. They know how to craft the right message and send it to the right audience at the right time.

This degree features cross-disciplinary coursework in business, information systems, and human behavior, along with oral, written, and verbal communication skills. The program offers a broad foundation in business principles that can help graduates become effective communicators in a professional setting.

Courses in ethics and psychology are as much a part of this unique program as writing and speaking skills. A field experience is also required. Our Career Development Office has helped students find internships with Comcast Cable, Comcast SportsNet, Abington Memorial Hospital, and other businesses and organizations in the Philadelphia area.
