Illinois College is adding a new major.
The school announced yesterday afternoon it’s adding an organizational and strategic communication major. The college says the new, interdisciplinary major takes the traditional communication discipline and focuses it on the workplace. Students will be required to take courses in marketing as well as English and/or art to hone writing or graphic design skills.
The college says the major is meant to prepare students for careers in employee relations, public relations, human resources, recruiting, political communication, sales, customer service, social media management, training and development, and project management.
