Communication envelops our lives – it shapes our ideas and values; gives rise to our politics, consumption, and socialization; and helps to define our identities and realities. Its power and potential is inestimable – from briefest of text messages to the grandest of public declarations, we indeed live within communication and invite you to join us in appreciating its increasing importance in contemporary society.
The M.A. in Communication emphasizes theory, research, and application to examine the ways humans communicate across a variety of levels and contexts. In addition to those interested in pursuing a PhD., an MA degree in communication can lead to advancement in careers throughout business and industry, healthcare, all levels of education, media and public relations, non-profit, government, and social services.
