Life After SCU

Our graduates pursue their life’s work through a wide variety of careers. Some go directly into film and television, journalism, public relations and corporate communication, graphic design, magazines, and web site development. Many graduates also choose other areas, such as law, social work, human relations, retail management, education, and other fields that demand excellent skills in interpersonal, visual, and written communication. We support students by offering extensive advising by faculty mentors, the University’s Career Center, and regular meetings on how to apply to graduate school. In each of these forums, we help students think about how their particular interests and talents can best meet the needs of society.
