The verbal communication track prepares students for any career that centers on writing and talking as professional skills: from business (sales) to law, ministry, or even politics. Areas of focus within the verbal communication track include public speaking, group communication and development of a strong writing skill set. A communication degree with a verbal communication track is often connected with a major or minor in business or a liberal arts field such as political science or psychology.
The media communication track prepares students for any career that centers on creating media content: from publication design, Web site development, computer video production and photography. A communication degree with a media track can be connected with an English degree or fine art degree.
Students who graduate with a communication degree are well suited for graduate school including law school or Mount Mercy’s Master of Strategic Leadership program.
Writing scholarships are available to incoming freshmen and transfer students with an interest and talent in writing for up to $3,000 and renewable up to four years for a total of $12,000.
