“I find that on a daily basis I draw from my educational experience at Belmont to make important observations and decisions about the organizational culture in which I work. My degree has prepared me for work in all avenues of life whether in the non-profit sector, business community, or in ministry. The Belmont Communication Studies department creates a unique mix of curriculum, from the great classics of Aristotle and Socrates, to modern day political discourse. This curriculum allows a person to springboard into any career choice. I cannot say enough of how proud I am of the professor’s knowledge and expertise in their individual fields.”

"I studied under dedicated and inspiring professors who challenged me as a student and a thinker. The diversity of the program provided me with a foundation to pursue my goals from teaching English at a high school in Paris, France to law school at the University of Mississippi."
"Business demands effective communication. Individuals who demonstrate core communications skills like the ones taught in Belmont's Communications Studies major bring great value to the business setting, and they can enjoy success in a wide variety of roles, such as marketing, sales, human resources, client relations, management and even corporate law. As a marketing and internal communications guy, I put my Belmont education to work every day as I create strategic marketing programs, manage vendors, develop presentations and support our company's sales team. I wouldn't be where I am today without the skills I learned at Belmont."
"The OCC program at Belmont allowed me to gain valuable communication skills that will help me in many different fields of work. I was able to learn about how a corporate culture works and how I can communicate effectively within that culture. I was able to learn how to understand and even mediate conflict within an organizational setting. I gained the skills to be able to communicate with different types of people across different cultures. All of these valuable skills will help me to be successful in whatever line of work I choose to pursue."
