Program Focus: Communication, Intercultural Studies, Art


Registration Time: 9:30 AM
Communication is a vital task of being human. How we communicate shapes who we are. Our postmodern, digital, media-saturated age demands that we view the interaction between language, technology, and images in new ways.

Whether you are seeking a career in broadcasting, journalism, public relations, advertising, sound design, digital media, law, or business, the ability to communicate is essential. And the communication major at Houghton College provides the foundation and skills to thrive in these fields and more.

Houghton’s Opportunity Day in Communication will provide answers to your questions and offer you insights into how Houghton can exceptionally prepare you for your chosen career. Learn about career options, talk with communication majors and faculty members, observe a class, and more!
