students in cap and gown

Our program is one of the top communication studies master’s programs in the country.

Theory and research in communication have the potential to improve nearly every element of human life. Communication Studies graduate students investigate communication processes impacting our personal, professional, and public lives. Our applied approach allows for students to explore research programs unique to their own interests. Our graduates pursue careers applying communication research in profit, nonprofit, and governmental organizations. Some alumni pursue doctoral education at the country’s top Ph.D. programs. Students who are Graduate Instructional Assistants earn financial support during school, while taking part in a world-class teacher training program through our department’s Teaching & Learning Academy.
