The Communication Program
UE's communication major provides a well-rounded education focused on preparing students for success in the job market.
Real World Experience
Through programs like Crescent Magazine, Aces TV, and WUEV-91.5 FM, UE communication students gain experience in a real world setting, giving them a leg up at graduation.
Students in the University of Evansville's Department of Communication have the opportunity to explore meaningful, hands-on experiences that fit their interests, goals, and curiosities. Students flourish under personal attention and instruction from faculty members – not teaching assistants – who have extensive practical experience in their fields. The department offers programs that suit a broad range of interests, from advertising and public relations to journalism and multimedia production.
Communication majors have numerous chances to put their skills to use through the following opportunities:
Practicums: On-campus experiences available through 91.5 FM WUEV (the campus radio station), Crescent Magazine, the LinC yearbook, AcesTV, or the Offices of Marketing and Communications, Sports Information, and Admission.
Internships: Recent local internship sites for communication majors have included Alcoa, Berry Plastics, Children’s Museum of Evansville, Deaconess Health System, Evansville Living magazine, Old National Bank, Mead Johnson Nutrition, Mesker Park Zoo, and Vectren Corporation.
Course work: Even classroom work has a real-world focus! Among the projects communication students complete are creating and carrying out advertising and PR campaigns for real-world clients.
