As a student in one of our graduate programs, you’ll develop a deep and meaningful understanding of the disciplines of communication studies and public relations–the philosophies, the principles and how these apply to scholarly and professional practice.
Both the MPR and MA (Communication) programs are available fully online and can be completed on a full- or part-time basis. If you’re interested in studying in-person, we usually offer some on-campus classes in the fall and winter semesters. Both programs start in the Fall semester.
