Summary

The Communication major prepares graduates to pursue communication doctoral studies, research positions in industry, and advanced teaching or professional careers. The major blends social-scientific and humanistic research with communication theory in the areas of media, technology, and society. Students are introduced to diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives, with a focus on research in every class. Faculty strengths in digital, political, strategic, rhetorical, and organizational communication enrich student learning and career readiness.

Degree Requirements:

All graduate students receiving the M.A. in Communication degree must complete 36 credit hours. Required coursework for students in the Communication major includes 9 credit hours of core subjects (Communication Theory, Quantitative Research in Communication, and Qualitative Research in Communication), 15 credit hours of major-specific coursework, at least 6 credits hours of electives, and 6 hours of thesis credit.
