Master Communication and Media teacher

Master of Communication and Media

The School of Communication and Information (SC&I) is one of the very few schools that offers our students the chance to leverage both communication and media to create a specialized learning experience. In maintaining our commitment to remain on top of the developments in these continually evolving industries, our faculty and staff recently transitioned the Master of Communication and Information Studies (MCIS) to a Master of Communication and Media (MCM). With exceptional faculty and prominent strengths in both our Communication and Journalism and Media Studies Departments, we feel this positive name change appropriately represents our program as we grow with the industries and careers our students are pursuing.

The MCM program integrates theory and practice to advance professional hands-on experience in communication, media and other information intensive professions. Our faculty emphasize original research, cutting edge theory, and knowledge and skills necessary to understand and manage the complex communication, information, and media processes inherent to the information age.

Only 8.9 percent of Americans have a Master’s degree (NCES, 2015). Now’s the time to set yourself apart with our MCM program.
