A Look at Our Graduate Program

As a student in our graduate program, you'll have the opportunity to work closely with faculty members who are leaders in their respective fields. In addition, downtown Milwaukee offers a rich, urban landscape for your studies, and the Diederich College fosters relationships with some of the city's top communication professionals.

The Master of Arts in Communication degree starts with foundational courses in research and theory, and our program offers the flexibility to choose from two specializations: Communication professions and society and Digital communication strategies. To complete the program, you may choose between a thesis track and a professional project, regardless of your specialization.

In addition to our MA in Communication, we offer a MA in Corporate Communication in conjunction with the Graduate School of Management. This 30 credit-hour program combines coursework in communication and advanced business courses to prepare you for an executive-level communication role.

Whether your goal is to get placed in a competitive Ph.D. program, create a professional portfolio for hiring managers, or prepare for an executive-level position, your graduate advisor will help you every step of the way. Not sure where to begin? Dr. Sarah Feldner is here to help.
