Strategic Communication students will work on and off campus to practice communication strategies for campus clubs, organizations and groups, picking up valuable experience in roles that will set them apart as job candidates.
Both majors will share a core curriculum with essential communication courses.
Outside of the classroom
Internships are required in both majors, and nothing helps communication students lay the foundation for a successful career quite like being an intern.
Doane’s liberal arts education is predicated on real-world learning, and communication students have used their knowledge and experience from their time on campus to land internships with branding agencies, newspapers, nonprofits, radio stations and local politicians as interns. Our students have even interned at The Late Show with David Letterman and the Scripps Howard News Foundation in Washington D.C.!
We help students with local and national internships through our College to Career Center, where dedicated full-time career counselors mentor our students into outstanding young professionals with their own personal brand.
