The Master of Arts in Communication is a generalist degree designed to enhance students' intellectual and professional growth through the understanding and practice of effective communication.

The degree is structured both to build a solid foundation and to allow students to specialize in one of two areas:

  1. Communication Management, "The Professional Track,"
  2. Doctoral Preparation, "The Academic Track."

Both areas blend research, theory, and practice to prepare students to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century. Students may choose to develop one of these options as they select their electives, or they may pursue a general course of study by selecting electives across the two areas of specialization. Either of the options may be pursued by students in the professional track; the doctoral preparation specialization is recommended for students in the academic track.
