Forms of communication are changing, and you are adapting just fine. You easily manage 8 social media accounts, read news online, and even write a travel blog. You are just as versatile as the degree you’re pursuing.
Good communication is important in any career, professional network, or relationship, so it’s no wonder it’s one of the top 10 most popular fields of study*. Though most of the careers within the communications field aren’t experiencing peak growth, jobs like technical writers and interpreters are growing at 15% and 46%*. In addition, the rapid growth of social media is leading to an increase in professions in online communication.
Humans will never stop communicating. A degree in communications and media is extremely versatile and can lead to paths in a variety of fields. The art of paper and pen may be lost, but with shortened attention spans, there’s never been a greater need for communication and media experts.*National Center for Education Statistics
