Year after year, employers rank "Communication Skills" as the #1 quality they seek in their employees, and the #1 quality prospective employees lack! (NACE Job Outlook Survey).
The modern work place demands creative thinking, eloquent writing, sharp speaking, and interpersonal savvy. The Communication Studies Department at Belmont University focuses on essential communication skills and offers students a range of electives and educational experiences that will help them chart their life's journey.
We offer degree programs in Communication Studies and Corporate Communications, and both majors include a minor and an unusual number of elective hours. Each semester, students work one-on-one with a faculty advisor to tailor their program of study for their personal and professional goals.
The Communication Studies Department has a higher-than-average job placement rate, and our alumni are putting their skills to work in a variety of careers including interactive marketing, event-planning, volunteer coordinating, ministry, law, campaign management, education, health communications, entertainment, and many more.
