Department of Mass Communication and Communication Studies
The Master of Science in communication management offers both professional and research-
oriented coursework. Our applied courses help provide the knowledge and skills to research,
plan, implement and evaluate activities designed to achieve communication goals in a variety of
professional settings. Our theory and methodology courses provide students with the academic
tools they need to complete the final components of the program – either comprehensive exams
or a thesis. In addition to Mass Communication and Communication Studies courses, students
will be able to choose from a wide variety of elective courses offered across the university.
The master’s program is appropriate for both career-oriented individuals who want to advance in
their chosen fields and for students who intend to pursue further graduate studies.
