Media and Communication

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Digital technologies dominate the media and communication industry today. Education in this field prepares students to create communication products through interactive media, film, and television. Preparation includes being able to gather, evaluate, and synthesize information and then write a message that communicates clearly to the audience.
