Communication, MASTER OF ARTS
Our MA in Communication includes two emphases: Communication General and Documentary Studies.
With a Communication General emphasis, you’ll prepare for a career in higher education, government, business, or community service. Our faculty expertise includes environmental communication, political communication, health communication, media studies, and gender and culture studies. You’ll gain the skills to solve complex issues in our complex world.
Working closely with a faculty mentor, you can design a degree program that suits your professional interests and needs. You’ll conduct and present independent research and become proficient in writing, critical thinking, reasoning, and presentation and defense of ideas—and you’ll emerge with the abilities of a communication expert.
If film is your passion, our Documentary Studies emphasis immerses you into the world of cutting-edge multimedia journalism and nonfiction storytelling. You’ll graduate ready to create your own media business or continue on to a PhD program in cinema and media studies.
