A Nichols Communication degree prepares students for dynamic careers in media, journalism, social media, marketing or writing. In this program, you'll be immersed in the hands-on development of communication skills, including video skills through the use of our green screen room and editing suite. And you'll do it while examining the growing role of media and social media in society and business.

Communication majors are valued in a myriad of professions because of their ability to use critical thinking and analytical skills in order to build successful interpersonal relationships and contribute effectively to group dynamics. And, according to a recent American Association of Colleges & Universities survey, more than 80 percent of employers say that effective written and oral communication skills are among the most important skills they look for when making hiring decisions. Communication majors are prepared to make a difference in the workplace and the world.
