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. We only offer one-two on campus courses each year. FYI: Given the pandemic, all our Winter and Summer 2021 course offerings will be delivered online.
