Graduate Program

Master of Arts Degree

The M.A. program combines teaching and research in a curriculum that prepares students for scholarly inquiry or work outside the academy. The M.A. in Communication emphasizes two major areas of interest: Communication or Mass Communication. Graduate Students can pursue a program in either area. Both areas provide students with a liberal arts curriculum that prepares them for life in the twenty-first century:

1. A broad understanding of historical and contemporary theories;
2. The Research skills necessary to explore and contribute to knowledge;
3. The ability to apply their knowledge in varied settings.

All students are expected to demonstrate a holistic understanding of theory and research and to be competent analysts of literature appropriate to their program of study. Both areas encourage the integration of knowledge from among the diverse approaches. Both areas provide students with a broad foundation for doctoral study and for employment as communication specialists and professional.  More information can be found here.
