We call it SOLSC (that’s “sol-see”) and it’s the place for leaders looking to excel in a high growth industry—leaders who want to shape the world through effective communication; inspire through thoughtful marketing programs, meaningful events, and powerful, original designs; and lead through strategic initiatives and creative problem-solving.

As an undergraduate student, you'll be challenged to explore public relations, advertising, social and new media, corporate communications, marketing, event planning and graphic design.
