  • Getting started with your communications career may seem overwhelming at first, never fear it’s not as hard as it looks. First you want to achieve an undergraduate degree. Higher education degrees are also welcomed but not required.\nFirst log onto the Salisbury.edu web page and on the left navigation bar click on “Academics” and then “Checklists for Majors & Minors”\n
  • You should come up with something similar to this. The top half of the check list has been cut off since it only discusses gen. eds. The bottom half is more important because it shows the four paths you can choose from and what classes are required for each path.\n
  • Your Communications Undergraduate degree can be completed in four years which means only 4 years of tuition needs to be paid.\nCommunications is a growing field so there are always businesses hiring. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics the 2010 Median Pay of a Public Relations Manager is $57,550.00 /year that’s $27.67/ hour. So even with a bachelor’s degree your son or daughter would be very well off in the communications field.\n
  • The American Communications Association was created for communications majors so that they can continue on their educational path by providing scholarships. It’s also good to put them on your resume if you’re a member, and since membership is free there’s no reason not to be. They also list communcations jobs on their website in case you aren’t sure where to start looking.\n
