The average American is exposed to over 3,000 ads a day—from television and radio advertisements to billboards, Web ads and sponsored text messages. In fact, you’ll spend about 3 years of your life watching TV ads alone.

With a major in communication, you will discover how people experience and understand media content, and you’ll explore the roles of the media in our rapidly evolving society.

We see you learning how to analyze and critique media texts, including those in newspapers, magazines, film, advertisements and new media—and you’ll create written, oral, and visual media content of your own.

Many Cedar Crest students choose to combine a major in communication with business, marketing, political science, English, or education, because they understand that employees with communication and media literacy skills are in high demand. Graduates with these skills are prepared to become leaders in tomorrow’s workforce.

A strong background in communication can prepare you for graduate studies and/or careers in:

  • Newspapers and magazines
  • Radio
  • Film production and development
  • Marketing and public relations
  • Business management
  • Public policy
  • Ethics and legal fields
