Recent Gallaudet alumni with undergraduate degrees in Communication Arts were asked about their perceptions of the major program and how it related to employment after graduation. Forty-four graduates (76 percent) responded. Ninety percent of the respondents were in the work force-in educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, private companies, and in government positions. Sixty-seven percent were satisfied with their salaries. The vast majority indicated that they were equipped to handle certain basic tasks on the job. Eighty-three percent said that their major courses had been very helpful. Over 60 percent indicated that they would choose the same major again. Implications for further research are included.
