Master of Science/Master of Arts in Communication Studies
The Communication Studies master’s degree offers both the Master of Arts and Master of Science degrees. Participants in both degrees study theories, models, and methods of human communication research, as well as specific areas of communication such as conflict management, public relations, communication education, marketing, and political education necessary to meet internal training and development needs, and to identify and use effective skills necessary to bridge the modern workplace communication gap.
The Master of Arts degree requires 38 credit hours (thesis optional) and the Master of Science requires 41 credit hours (thesis required). Both degrees prepare students to seek education at the doctoral level. Students may complete all master’s requirements in six semesters or may elect to take one course at a time.
