What Our Students Say

  • My Master's program in media and communication exposed me to opportunities I didn't even know were possible when I started. I discovered I was really fascinated by how the structure and regulation of media affects the information we receive, and now I'm working at an organization that helps with journalists when they're facing legal issues here in the U.S.

    Jenn Topper, MA Media & Communication Studies ‘07
  • My degree prepared me for the challenging task of communicating the climate crisis to the international community, providing the skillset to succeed at several NGO's tackling issues like ocean conservation, sustainable landscapes and climate change.

    Melissa Angel, MA Media and Communication Studies ‘16
  • My Master's program had a flexible curriculum in which I was able to deliberately choose courses I felt would give me a lasting foundation. Faculty, staff, classmates and alumni were supportive as I explored my options and sought experience.
