Global Media and Communication Studies (M.A.)

Communicate Globally

More than ever before, professionals in the communications field need intercultural sensitivity, international awareness and the ability to transcend borders and interpret the communications of other cultures.

This 36 credit Global Media and Communication Studies (M.A.) program is completed over four semesters plus one summer. It requires an overseas internship for domestic students and for those whose first language is English, and a final thesis or a project demonstrating excellence.

This program is designed to prepare you to become a government, NGO or business spokesperson. It is also an excellent fit for students anticipating a career as a foreign news reporter or commentator, a webmaster or content manager for an international firm; a cross-cultural communications specialist; a public relations specialist; or a career in public diplomacy.
