Beginning Fall 2014
"Starting college at a smaller campus like Penn State Worthington Scranton was the ideal choice for me. The intimate environment and smaller class sizes gave me a greater opportunity to connect with my professors. They helped guide me towards a career that matched my skills and interests. My time at PSWS shaped who I am today and provided me with a strong foundation upon which to build my career. Today, I love my job and each day brings something new. If you’re considering a degree in corporate communication, it’s an exciting career path with many interesting job opportunities for individuals just like you!" -- Lisa Miles, Senior Vice President Corporate Communications & Investor Relations at MAXIMUS, Inc.
Corporate communication professionals see communication as a function of management: they use their oral and written communication skills to help achieve business goals. They know how and when information is best shared, and they know how to employ a variety of media to communicate strategically. Taking into consideration factors such as corporate identity, corporate reputation, or message consistency, they coordinate an organization’s internal and external communication.
Corporate communication majors at Penn State Worthington Scranton receive a cross-disciplinary education, drawing on the strengths of the Departments of Business, English, Human Development and Family Studies, and Information Science and Technology. Students acquire a foundation in business administration. Additionally, they complete coursework in a variety of other fields, including communication arts and sciences, English, information science and technology, and psychology. An internship prepares graduates to succeed on the job market.
Students might also consider minoring in business, English, or psychology to showcase the breadth of their skills.
Graduates who earn a Bachelor of Arts in Corporate Communication may work for businesses, consulting firms, educational institutions, non-profit organizations, or the government. They may fill a variety of positions, including in the fields of advertising, human resources, management, marketing, media relations, public relations, and sales.
