After You Graduate
As a graduate with a degree in communication, you have the opportunity to become employed in every possible industry including public relations, sports communication, event planning, business communication, human resources, non-profit management, mass media, social media marketing and health communication. Many of our majors also pursue advanced degrees in the study of communication or advance their careers through professional degrees in law, business, counseling, or strategic communication.
The Queens Knight School of Communication is a national leader in the study of digital and media literacy; our faculty spearheaded the local digital literacy educational organization, Digital Charlotte. We've also established the first curriculum partnership ever with Google Fiber. You will have the opportunity to study and practice digital literacies across media platforms. You will also find that employers are hiring people who can help navigate and manage the complexities of internet-based, social and participatory media.
