Collaborating with the University, the Department of Communication provides opportunities for you to become directly involved with media production and develop professional skills.
Clubs and organizations can provide you with real-world experience, ranging from producing publications and shows to writing and editing scripts and stories, to developing your own on-air talents. Our department student groups also offer valuable professional networking opportunities.
Discuss the communication field and develop relationships with other students, faculty and staff involved in the program through Psi Theta, SLU's chapter of the National Communication Association's Honor Society, Lambda Pi Eta. Psi Theta participates in service projects and sponsors events where communication students and professors get to know each other outside of the classroom.
In order to be a member of the honor society you must:
- Be a junior or senior (60 course hours taken including at least 12 credit hours in communication)
- Have an overall GPA of 3.0 with a 3.25 GPA in communication classes
For more information about the SLU chapter, contact Psi Theta faculty adviser Hillary Ash.
Develop skills in writing, copy editing, publication design or public relations by working with SLU’s social justice-oriented magazine, OneWorld. OneWorld publishes a fall and spring issue each year, with stories focused on both local and global social justice issues.
The Strategic Communication Club (SCC) explores career preparation, hosts speakers and facilitates agency tours for students interested in public relations, advertising, marketing communication and related fields. Students from all majors and disciplines are welcome. Students are encouraged but not required to join national organizations, the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and the American Advertising Federation (AAF). This club is managed in the Department of Communication with student advisory roles.
