ADTP Arts: Communication

About The Programme

A major in communications makes for solid pre-professional training. It will prepare students for a wealth of careers in business, public relations, advertising, human resources, government, education, media, and social services. Students will not come away with specific skills like putting together an ad campaign or producing a television show. The program will, however, give students a strong foundation from which to launch into any number of careers.
