Students in communication are frequently asked by friends and family about what they can do with their degrees. The Communication Club at Kean helps students answer this question. The Club brings in a variety of speakers each semester who discuss how they use communication skills in their careers. The Club focuses on highlighting the numerous career opportunities that students have with a degree in communication studies. The Club also helps students make the connection between the theory and research that is discussed in their classes with future potential job opportunities.
Recent speakers have been in the areas of advertising, corporate training and consulting, human resources, journalism, public relations, the FBI, non-profit agencies, university foundations, event planning, media management, politics, mediation and negotiation, and speech writing.
Club events are open to all communication majors, minors and others who are interested in communication. For more information about the club activities, contact Dr. Jack Sargent, 908.737.0467, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
