Communication Arts students prepare for graduate and professional programs, for the workplace, and for intentional, effective communication in all areas of life. Graduates have been placed in many areas that apply both their practical skills and their critical perspectives that include, but are not limited to:

Content Producer/Editor, Circle Media
After graduation I got married and moved with my wife to Nashville, TN. I spent my first summer working as a waiter & bartender while freelancing at Aspiration Entertainment, a film marketing & distribution company. They’re very ground level and focused on telling important stories so it was cool to work with small films and helping them find an audience. Now I’ve moved on to working at Circle, an upcoming network set to launch January 1, 2020. There aren’t too many employees and you wear a lot of hats, but with a liberal arts degree in communications, the needed flexibility comes naturally. As the company grows and my position evolves I can roll with the punches easier than if I came in with an education strictly in, say, video production. While I have a passion for film and story and focused on those, classes in messaging and theory pay off when you’re asked for your input on a motion graphic that will play between shows and you can be very articulate about how you think an audience will respond to it.

What I appreciated most about the Communication Arts major is it allowed me the opportunity to really find my voice and articulate my thoughts. In my professional role, I deal with clients everyday and I have been blessed with ability to communicate effectively and build meaningful relationships with people of different backgrounds.

"Gordon provided fantastic mentors that not only encouraged me to continue pursuing filmmaking by going to the LA semester, but also to apply to grad school."

"One thing I appreciated most about the Communication Arts major was the freedom to pursue my own interests. The curriculum allowed me the freedom to fuel my passions while honing my skills. It was the perfect environment to develop both the ability to communicate effectively as well to become a person with ideas and experiences worth communicating."
