What kind of job can I get?

The type of job you get when you graduate is influenced by many factors. Your major is only one. Also important are the work and internship experiences you have during college, as well as the leadership roles you have in co-curricular activities on campus and in the community.

The Department of Communication Studies is housed in the Center for Communication Studies and Theatre, located on the southern side of Longwood University's campus.


The Communication Studies program is fundamentally about choices. Our students learn to make strategic and ethical communication choices across a variety of contexts-including mass media, interpersonal relationships, small groups, and organizations.

The Communication Studies program at Longwood offers students a choice between two concentrations:

Students are free to take courses from either concentration as electives, or to add a minor in any of Longwood's areas of study.

Our award-winning faculty assist students in accomplishing their learning objectives, including in-class discussion & activities, collaborative projects with on-campus & off-campus organizations, web-based learning methods such as wikis & discussion boards, community-based service learning, participation in co-curricular activities, and completing internships in the career field of their choice.
