Communication Studies, something to be
curious about, something to live, something to get excited about, something
to make your world a more connected place. Communication Studies, something to
talk about! I majored in Communication Studies because
it allowed me to just explore the different paths that a communication
degree can take you in. Whether it’s Broadcasting, Human Resources, Writing,
Training, Education, etc. and mine led me to marketing. Many of us that come from a
Communication Studies background just enjoy being around people. I work with a variety of stakeholders. You have to really think about the power of word choice and the power of how persuasion really can make or break you in the
business world. Communicating with parents, community members, staff members, between internal communication to external communication, the degree I’ve
received has provided a huge foundation for what I use on a daily basis. If I can communicate effectively and deliver an effective message and get people to buy in
and get people to believe, then I could accomplish anything. Just because
somebody is getting a business degree or a teaching degree I promise you your
communication degree is just as important, if not more important because
if all those people get all those degrees and they can’t communicate what
they’ve learned effectively, then what was the point? So UNT was a perfect
place for me. Being in a school that celebrates diversity, creativity, and
community. I own and operate a local blog called “We Denton Do It.” For “We Denton Do It,” what it looks like is how we build a relationship with our community. It’s all knowing how to interact in a larger way outside of yourself and that’s what
my degree really helped to teach me. Without the preparation with what we did
in the Communication Department I wouldn’t have had the ability to be able to
construct concise ideas, or be able to present them in a concise manner to the
folks that matter in the industry. Whether it be any company I’ve ever worked for,
across any industry really doesn’t matter. I think the core foundation of
any successful individual in any given marketplace is that ability to
communicate.
