No matter the industry you venture into, communications are certainly key. It’s why many choose a qualification in communications to help them craft their skills. Communication-related fields might include journalism, advertising, public relations and even marketing. As a broad field of study, it’s an interesting one too. This is because it involves both traditional and modern forms of communication like digital.
