Graduate Program

 

The Department of Communication offers two graduate level programs:

The Master of Science degree is designed to provide students with academic experiences that enable them to evaluate, develop, shape and change the communication environment within organizations (organizational communication) as well as between organizations and their target audiences (public relations), using traditional and contemporary media technologies.  Students will learn to understand communication processes, internal and external to an organization; employ research methods in the diagnosis of communication problems within organizations and between organizations and their target audiences, including those resulting from intercultural differences; apply problem-solving, decision-making and negotiaion strategies in complex relational situations within organizations; examine the use and impact of information and communication technologies in the design and evaluation of strategic communication campaigns and other organizational applications; and develop and practice sound and ethical reasoning.

The Official Certificate Program is a non-degree certificate program and is designed for college graduates wishing to expand or update their knowledge of public relations/promotions, but who are not ready to commit to a graduate program leading to a master's degree.  The program provides students with a formal option for post-baccalaureate studies.  Courses completed as part of this certificate program may later be applied to the department's master's program if admission requirements and time limitations for that program are successfully met.
