The Schoonover Center for Communication brings all Scripps College schools under one roof to encourage collaboration.

Every business that wants to compete in the global information economy uses high-tech communication systems. Banks, oil companies, insurance firms, retail chains — none of these could operate without their communication networks.

McClure School students prepare for careers in this fast-growing industry. Jobs in the information and telecommunication systems field are projected to grow by up to 30 percent by 2020. If you want a career working with technology, but don’t want to major in engineering, this is the place for you.
