Comments from Graduates

“It was the dedication of each professor in the communication arts department at Notre Dame that helped me land my first job as a news producer. Throughout my four years as a Communication Arts major, the professors helped me with my communication skills, of course, but also helped me strengthen my passion for the media and pushed me to work as hard as possible to get me where I wanted to go.”

“As personnel director of a $200 million credit union, my interpersonal communication skills have come to the forefront.  Employees look to me in the role of interviewer, recruiter, benefits consultant, payroll administrator and training manager. My public speaking skills are used to lead staff training sessions and for presentations to the Board of Directors. The writing courses that filled the curriculum at Notre Dame have enabled me to express my thoughts and ideas in business proposals, handbooks and training manuals.”

“The core classes gave me an appreciation of the complexities of the media and the demands of public relations as well as sharpened my understanding of news reporting and editing. Most important, I gained the confidence to pursue a career as an editor and reporter, knowing I had a solid media background.”
