Question about Communication Major

oaksblogoaksblog Registered User Posts: 39 Junior Member
Hello, my major is in communication. There is two specializations that are offered, public relations and media studies. I was wondering what the difference is between the both and which one can be seen as more marketable. Thanks.

    Your school's communication department will be the best source of information about the differences between the specializations.

    For marketability, "Public Relations" is a well established job title (or part of a title). If you know you absolutely want to pursue a career in PR, then this could be the better specialty. Media studies doesn't point to a specific job but that could be a good thing as it would let you go in more directions.
