Our Approach: Think. Do.
That’s all it will take a new La Salle Communication student to start getting experience in Communication. At some other places, it might take you two years to get your hands on equipment, let alone your face on the air. Or words in print. Or helping an organization promote itself.
But at La Salle, it only takes two weeks.
Just to be clear, we’re not “How-To U.” If you only want to know how to work a camera, distribute a press release, or write a news article, just pull up a few YouTube videos.
If you want more than the basic skills, come to La Salle. You’ll learn to think and do.
In our classes and on-campus experiences, we’ll teach you how to think. You’ll learn the theory that will help you make good decisions about how to best tell stories, position an organization, improve relationships. You’ll be able to judge what works and what doesn’t, and then prove it through research.
Our faculty work side by side with students to discuss tough issues, problem-solve, and develop communication strategies and tactics.
Within two weeks, you can get involved with our student organizations to gain valuable experience. Several of our classes use experiential and service-learning activities to help you gain real-life experience in a classroom setting.
This combination of thinking and doing prepare you to tackle internships in the nation’s fifth largest media market (and beyond), which that means incredible internship opportunities to apply what you learn. Our students intern with the Philadelphia Eagles, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and NBC10, and some internships have taken our thinkers and doers to the White House, the Winter Olympics, The Late Show with David Letterman, and ESPN. And that’s just the short list.
As a La Salle graduate, you’ll have the knowledge and the practical experience to launch your career.
That’s our approach: Think. Do. (Repeat as necessary.)
