The best part about Christopher Newport is that no matter your major or life plan, Christopher Newport will set you up for success. I have chosen to pursue a bachelor’s degree in communication studies, and I am already enjoying so many great benefits from the program.
If you’re unfamiliar with this major, communication studies is, at its broadest, the study of interaction. It can be applied to all facets of life, but common focal points are, but not limited to, its application to ethics, culture and media. With a communication studies degree, you could get involved with social sciences, HR, PR, advertising/marketing, politics and you can even work with an adviser to help ensure your communication degree sets you up for law school.
The Communication Department offers tons of great courses that delve into all sorts of disciplines and styles. Public speaking, gender, media, rhetoric and argumentation are just a few topics that communication courses focus on. In addition, there is a myriad of internship options. Just yesterday, I received an email from the Comm Department alerting me to an upcoming internship opportunity. That’s how interested Christopher Newport is in seeing the success of its students!
