With a 95 percent career placement rate, the Communication Department excels at creating connections between students and businesses across the country. Our Communication programs cover exactly what employers are looking for: leadership, interpersonal and team-based communication, writing, graphic design, branding, image rhetoric, and many other topics.
Our students become proficient at clear communication and target audience messaging. They gain the skills necessary to enter any setting—online, in print, or in person; professional or otherwise—and effectively engage with others.
Our students aren’t just sitting in classrooms learning; they are professionals working hands-on to develop and sharpen their skills. Our students perform communication audits, evaluate website effectiveness, send book proposals and query letters, execute communication campaigns, and write for The Echo, Taylor’s award-winning student newspaper.
Faculty also bring students to regional and national conferences, like the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), regional IABC conventions in Cincinnati and Cleveland, and Public Relations Society of America’s (PRSA) Indianapolis chapter meeting.
Our Communication students have gone on to study at many graduate programs, including:
