La Salle University Communication Department: Hands-On Learning for Real-World Success


You don’t have to look hard to find an alum of La Salle University’s Communication Department in today’s lightning fast, 24/7, see-it-as-it-happens world of media and communication.

Emmy Award winners. P.R. and Advertising executives. Journalists at the Wall Street Journal. Digital media executives at MTV, NBA Digital and Spike TV. Movie producers. Teachers. Authors. And the list goes on.

How have we become one of the top communication programs? It’s all in our approach: Think. Do.

Our talented, enthusiastic faculty with national media and corporate connections challenge smart, motivated students to think and then learn by doing. We’re located in Philadelphia, the nation’s fifth-largest media market, so from major television and radio stations to newspapers, P.R. firms and digital media companies, our students have access to real-world communication environments that prepare them for fun and rewarding careers.

Students who take advantage of our top-level internship program gain experience working at the White House, the Olympics, the American Cancer Society, Johnson & Johnson, and the Philadelphia Eagles, to name just a few.

We’re proud of our alumni and the students who work so hard to make our department one of the most robust in the nation, and we invite you to read a welcome from our Department Chair to learn more about the opportunities our Communication Department offers.
