Endless Career Opportunities

Communication media and technology is everywhere, and someone needs to effectively manage it all. Organizational communication professionals help manage challenges like communicating major changes and maximize organizational effectiveness. Public Relations professionals are needed to manage organizations’ relationships with the public. Health communication professionals are needed to manage the distribution of useful information to the public and patients about complex health matters. Mass media experts and journalists are needed to produce engaging content for television, radio, blogs, magazines and newspapers. Strategic communication skills are needed in every industry, and UW-Green Bay's Communication major will prepare you to be a communication professional. 

What We Strive For

The Communication Department mission is to develop core competencies in oral, written and visual communication for our interdisciplinary program. All students should have a basic competency in each of these areas in order to enhance their effectiveness in their chosen communication area of emphasis. Students should have a conceptual grasp of the major communication theories and the impact of technology on the communication process.
