What makes Walsh's Corporate Communication major unique?
- Blended curriculum. Our Corporate Communication major is a unique program that mixes theory and practical skills that are found in our Business and Communication major's coursework.
- Emphasis on ethics. As part of our Catholic mission, we stress ethics and responsibility within the coursework and the practices of this major.
In addition, students have the option to enroll in Walsh's new 4+1 Program for non-business majors who would like to supplement their bachelor's degree with an MBA. Through the program, students simultaneously earn undergraduate and graduate credit for Walsh's MBA Prep Series courses, saving both time and money as students pursue their advanced degree.
Generally speaking, what courses will I need to take to graduate with a Corporate Communication degree?
The major is composed of a mix of both business and communication courses, with roughly half of the credits in each area. Lower-level courses focus on concepts and skills; the upper-level courses encourage students to apply knowledge to real-world situations.
What experiential learning or internship opportunities are available with a Corporate Communication major?
Corporate Communication majors can enroll in either the communication or business internship program. While we do not require an internship, we strongly counsel all of our majors to have at least one internship during their junior or senior year.
