Communication Undergraduate Major
Christina Ann Converset
“I use my communication degree constantly as I network and create programs that fit our organization’s mission and goals for the communities we support. Our programs help support the youth of Western Racine County communities make healthy choices. We specialize in alcohol and drug programs that help students, parents and community members be engaged in creating social change.”
A communication degree prepares you for a successful career in areas such as corporate communications, event planning, health communication, marketing and public relations. Because practical experience is highly valued by employers, all communication majors are required to participate in an internship prior to graduating.
