Alumni Testimonial

The STRC department has been extremely helpful in providing me with the tools to prepare for a career beyond college. The courses within the department give a solid and in-depth overview of the different realms of communications and apply it effectively to organizations and how they function. In addition, through having such qualified and knowledgeable professors, I feel that I am even more equipped for success in the field of communications. I don't think any other department could have done a more effective job in preparing students for the real world.
