Welcome to the Communication Department
At Wittenberg, we believe that teaching and learning doesn’t stop at the classroom door. That’s why a large number of our communication students take advantage of field experiences and internships while in our active and engaged learning environment.
From hands-on opportunities to work with digital media through our Integrated Media Corps (IMC), to special networking trips through our Communication Leaders program, to options to work on our student-run newspaper The Torch and student-run radio station WUSO 89.1 FM, Wittenberg students studying communication leave fully prepared for tomorrow's jobs.
Wittenberg communication graduates have gone on to successful careers at Random House, Forbes Magazine, Fahlgren Mortine Advertising, various television networks, and the Wall Street Journal, just to name a few.
