Global Strategic Communication, MS

The master’s program in Global Strategic Communication equips students with the theory-based knowledge and analytical skills necessary to develop and implement communication strategies for globalized organizations. Offering an interactive curriculum in an intimate, collegial setting, communication graduate students learn to interpret and conduct primary research to create effective messages and give meaningful counsel.

The program offers flexibility for students to adapt to their individual needs, preferences, and career aspirations. Students work closely with faculty and peers, creating a family-like atmosphere while gaining first-hand experience working in collaborative team settings. Coursework covers all aspects of communication—from foundations of communication theory and strategic communication, to argumentation across cultures and global politics, to the sociological implications of media and evolving communication technologies. Students participate in a range of communication projects, including applied design projects, research papers for conferences and journals, and professional multimedia presentations.
