MA in Communication University of Colorado Boulder College of Media, Communication and Information
The master’s degree provides students with knowledge of communication scholarship and develops their ability to analyze complex communication situations. The program is intended to serve two groups of students: (a) those planning to pursue the Ph.D. degree, either at CU-Boulder or another institution; and (b) those interested in finding employment in other sectors (e.g., for-profit businesses, government, nonprofit organizations and other types of community groups). Students wishing to continue in the department’s Ph.D. program following completion of the master’s degree must reapply at that time and be accepted into the program.
The master's degree program's administration confirms all CU-Boulder graduate school rules regarding residency requirements, time for completion of the degree, and the maximum transfer credit hours. The master’s program has two options for the completion of requirements: thesis or comprehensive examination.
