Types of Positions Available in Business and Government for the Graduate in Communication.
Schuelke, L. David
The professional slant of the program in technical and scientific communication at the University of Minnesota, Saint Paul, is in contrast to the classical liberal arts tradition of academic preparation in the field of communication. The major concern of this program is to provide a curriculum and an advising strategy to make communications study more responsive to the real world of work and to provide students with opportunities for interaction with business and industry. In addition to traditional course offerings, students are required to build their own "technical" electives in such areas as the natural sciences, computer science, engineering, statistics, industrial relations, and so on. The combination of expertise in theoretical approaches to communication and marketable skills, encouraged by this program, makes success in obtaining communications-related positions (such as information specialist, personnel manager, market researcher) much more probable.
