Chair’s Welcome: Dr. Michael Smith
I hate when I hear people say there are no jobs for communication majors.
Think about it. There isn’t a single job or profession that doesn’t involve communication in some way. According to research, employers put communication skills at the top of their list when hiring.
And, the number of employment opportunities in communication continues to increase.
Our alums get great jobs, win Emmy Awards, are outstanding leaders in their fields, and work in just about every aspect of communication you could imagine. One reason for this is the competitive opportunities our students have, from top-rate internships to a variety of student organizations.
The most important thing to know about us, though, is that teaching is our highest priority at La Salle. Our approach is anchored in a commitment to helping our students develop the communication knowledge and skills they need to be successful, both professionally and personally.
So, drop me an e-mail or give me a call to arrange a time to come by and pay us a visit. Sit in on a class. Watch a taping of a show for La Salle TV. Talk to our students. See for yourselves that we’re all we say—and more.

Chair, Department of Communication
