The School of Communication and Journalism's Graduate Program in Communication is a 30 credit-hour program in which you will take classes in human communication, public relations, and media studies. Integrating theory, research, and practice in these areas of communication, our goal is to provide you with an exceptional masters-level educational experience focusing on building your critical and analytical skills. Working with your advisor, you will also be able to focus on your specific interests by applying them to an internship or writing a thesis so you can meet your academic and professional goals.
The Masters program curriculum consists of:
* 9 credit-hours (3 classes) of required courses in communication theory and research methods;
* 18 credit hours (6 classes) of elective coursework that include classes in human communication, public relations, and media studies; and
* 3 credit hours that involve either writing a thesis or completing an internship
As an alternative, we offer a Communication Graduate Certificate, which is an 18 credit-hour program that involves taking 9 credit-hours (3 classes) of required courses and 9 credit hours (3 classes) of elective course work.
Whether you're a recent undergraduate or graduated a few years ago, whether you majored in communication or any another field, we invite you to learn more about the exciting field of Communication.
