Graduate Degrees and Certificates
We offer several options for students who want to pursue the study of communication after they have completed their undergraduate degree.
Graduate Certificate: Communication and Advocacy
Engage in growing opportunities to tackle emerging advocacy needs. Students learn to communicate with diverse allies across digital and physical platforms; engage and motivate audiences by clearly, consistently and creatively telling stories worth sharing; and approach advocacy challenges from health, organizational, intercultural, intergroup, global, mediated and persuasion contexts.
Master of Arts: Communication Studies
Gain a broad spectrum of knowledge about human communication in various social contexts, and the ways in which information is produced and processed. The program prepares individuals to pursue a doctorate degree, as well as for non-academic careers in which a broad understanding of communication theory and research is desirable.
Doctorate Degree: Communication and Information
The doctoral program in the College of Communication and Information prepares students for careers as scholars in the disciplines of communication and information. Students have a primary academic “home” in one six areas, but we encourage CCI doctoral students to engage across disciplines.
