Barbara J. Mayo, UTPA communication lecturer and coordinator of the event, said it will include the introduction of faculty members from the UTPA Department of Communication, who will discuss such career fields as public relations, journalism, law, speech, theater and advertising.
"We want to show students the different tracks they can take with a communications degree," she said. "There are so many things a person can do with this type of degree that students are unaware of. We just want to make students aware of their options."
Mayo said more than 150 students from UTPA and area high schools are expected to attend.
Music and refreshments also will be provided. For more information, contact Mayo at 956/381-2376.
