Communication (M.S.)

Our Master of Science in Communication degree offers two concentration areas that allow for a global perspective on communication issues: 

  • Strategic Communication for those who want to focus on advertising, public relations, and organizational communication issues
  • Mass communication for those who want to focus on media and society

The Master of Science in Communication degree program will prepare you for professional advancement, a career change, or the pursuit of a Ph.D. degree. 

In addition to our established concentrations, we understand that every student's academic journey is unique. That's why we now offer you the flexibility to tailor your degree according to your interests and career goals. You have the opportunity to craft your own "concentration" by selecting courses that align with your aspirations. This personalized approach empowers you to shape your educational experience and create a degree that truly reflects your individual path.

Students may choose from three tracks to complete the degree program: thesis track, professional project track, or comprehensive examination track.

Regardless of which track students follow, the program offers students the opportunity for a blend of communication theory and hands-on practical application courses.
