Our philosophy is that the student is central, and that philosophy drives every piece of content we create.
Our mission is to then educate students so they can make the best decision for their personal, academic, and professional goals.
The field of Communication plays a vital role in all aspects of society, and across multiple industries. From politics to journalism, the corporate world, and the non-profit space, communication in all its forms (e.g. interpersonal, intercultural, online and print news, social media, marketing content and advertising, etc.) is how important information is crafted and disseminated to relevant parties to educate them and/or motivate constructive action. In addition, the social scientific study of communication from an academic perspective helps us to better understand how humans connect with one another on an interpersonal, communal, national, and international scale.
Professionals in the field of communication have the power to facilitate productive connections between leadership and employees within a company, or between a corporation and the public, investors, and/or various stakeholders. They also have the skills and knowledge to write content that benefits mass audiences, and are equipped to guide people who wish to improve their interpersonal communication in professional and personal settings. Scholars of communication study and advance our understanding of trends in the communication space and how they impact human behavior, the economy, health care, and politics. These researchers are also on the cutting edge of the strategies and technologies we use to improve such important areas as patient-provider communications, social media security, and organizational communication dynamics.
Our goal is to provide individuals considering graduate programs in communication with all the information they need to research different areas within this field, and to find master’s in communication programs that meet their academic interests and professional goals. This diverse field includes master’s programs that focus on the behavioral/social scientific study of human communication and highly applied programs that focus on professional skill development. There are also programs that combine these two disciplines, allowing students to choose their area of focus. We combine meticulously researched data of all available campus, online, and hybrid master’s in communication programs in the U.S. with in-depth articles on the different fields of communication, including corporate/organizational, mass, technical, public relations, integrated marketing, political, health, and strategic communication. We also have an FAQ section that covers current and prospective students’ most common questions about jobs and master’s programs in communication.
