Virginia is a great state in which to go to college. Virginia college students enjoy close proximity to Washington, D.C., but also the opportunity to live in a more rural or suburban setting. Virginia is home to many colleges and universities. Virginia is still a surprisingly rural state, with tobacco as the primary cash crop. It was the birthplace of our nation, as the very first European settlement in North America was established at Jamestown in 1607. Virginia is a state of contrasts: not only do you have historic Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg, you also find the home of the Pentagon and of Mae East, the major East Coast internet hub. Whether you enjoy hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains, wandering along its beaches, or enjoying a quiet dinner in its many fine restaurants, you are likely to find attending college in Virginia to be an excellent choice.

Create stories for TV, web & more with a Communications Degree

To say that we live in the communications age would be a gross understatement. The vast majority of us rely so heavily on our cell phones that if we leave our home without them, we feel naked. But our reliance doesn't stop there. From television, to radio, to wireless technology, to GPS tracking systems, to the Internet, we are wholly dependent on our ability to communicate with one another. Staying connected is of the utmost importance in today's global economy.

The Rise of Communications Programs

Given how dependent we are on communications, it should be no surprise that programs in this field have begun cropping up all over the country in recent years. Depending on what type of career you want to pursue, you have a whole host of communications disciplines from which to choose. In the entertainment section, you have film, television, and radio. And for more practical purposes, you have wireless communications, networking, and telephony. Both branches are progressing at an unbelievable rate, and both offer numerous career opportunities for those with the appropriate training.

What That Training Might Include

In a typical communications program, you'll be exposed to basic electrical engineering, networking, computer science, telecommunications, and mathematics. Thereafter, your actual curriculum will be largely determined by what specific track you want to pursue. The entertainment branch of communications might not rely as heavily on wireless technology or GPS/satellite systems. Whereas the other branch might not rely as heavily on marketing, consumer psychology, advertising, storyboarding, or plot lines. Because communications is such a broad field, there is a lot of ground that one can cover during the course of his or her study.
