Starting in the fall of 2015, the Business Communication department will begin its first semester of a new master's program in Communication Studies. The innovative accelerated M.S. in Communication Studies is designed for those who want to enhance communication competencies in order to communicate more effectively both professionally and personally.
The curriculum covers the major areas of communication (Interpersonal, Intercultural, Organizational, Nonverbal, Conflict Resolution, Samll Group, Rhetorical and Speech) and integrates each into the presentation of a final project through a capstone experience or thesis. The graduates of this program will be able to rely on their communication skills to provide resolutions across various cultural, social and business settings.
The Master's Degree is a 36-credit-hour program that can be completed entirely online in 8-week sessions with the exception of the capstone project or master's thesis.
Here, Dr. Leeanne Bell McManus, who will teach in the Master's program, works with a student on his online progress.
If you have any questions or are interested in the M.S in Communication Studies, please contact Chip Rouse or pick up a flyer in the BizComm hallway.
