Communication and Media Research

The Communication and Media Research specialization is intended for students who wish to take a more research-oriented course of study. It is also designed for those students who may wish to pursue a Ph.D. program after completing the MCM degree. These students have somewhat different requirements (9 credits of core; 3 credits of research practicum; 3 credits of teaching internship; 21 credits of electives and also a zero-credit Colloquium requirement). In addition to coursework, these students will be involved in empirical research with a faculty member; assist in teaching a course, and focus their study and capstone project with a research orientation.
