Professional Communication, MA

Our Students

Our students come to the program with diverse interests and backgrounds. Some already have experience working in the field of communications, while others have worked in nonprofits, engineering and design, or journalism and media.

Still others arrive straight from their undergraduate university eager to take their knowledge of communications to the next level. These vast and varied experiences allow students to build a solid professional network that will continue to benefit them long after graduation.
