Career pathways include communications or public relations managers, marketing and advertising specialists, editors and publishers, graphic designers and social media managers, copywriters and television producers, game designers and videographers.

The broad set of creative, critical, and communicative skills developed in the program remain in high demand among employers in every field. A 2018 study found graduates with media studies and communications majors had lower rates of underemployment than every discipline except engineering, computer science, and information science. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in media and communication occupations is projected to grow 14% from 2020 to 2030, faster than the average for all occupations, resulting in about 151,500 new jobs in the field.
