Ripon College offers a major and minor in communication. The study of communication at Ripon is a thoughtful balance of theory and practice, designed to deepen your understanding of the field and also to refine your ability to apply theories of communication to real-world situations. Communication is a broad degree that can lead to job opportunities in many different fields, including but not limited to: government, business, public relations, advertising, media and entertainment, nonprofit, law, and higher education. Communication also provides good preparation for graduate school in many disciplines including communication, law, education, business, and public administration, among others. On average, communication majors complete three internships. More than 80 percent of graduates from Ripon’s Communication Department are placed in their career of choice before graduation (90 percent within six months of graduation), and 100 percent of our alumni pursuing graduate education in communication have received full scholarships.
