MASTER OF ARTS IN COMMUNICATION STUDIES
The central objective of the Master of Arts program in the School of Communication and Multimedia Studies is to equip students with historical, theoretical and critical knowledge of oral, written, visual and aural symbol systems, the institutions and processes which produce them, and the audiences/readers who engage them. The goal of the degree is to focus and enhance students' ongoing and future efforts in communication-related professions or activities or to prepare them for doctoral studies and/or academic careers. The program emphasizes the intersections among cultural studies, film, intercultural communication, media, and rhetoric. Within programmatic constraints, students in consultation with their designated graduate advisor or supervisory committee will develop individualized programs of study tailored to their academic interests.
Graduate Teaching Assistantships are available on a competitive basis to full-time graduate students.
