Our Program

We prepare students for professional careers and scholarly pursuits through academic rigor & practical training within a large urban media market.

Each year, more than 100 graduate students come to Klein College of Media and Communication to pursue professional and scholarly opportunities in the heart of one of the greatest media cities in the world. With seven graduate programs covering every aspect of communication from interpersonal communication and conflict to media production and alternative modes of journalism, Klein is the best place to be to continue your education in a hub of media excellence.

As our faculty and students constantly monitor and adjust to the dynamic and ever-changing world of media and communication, we understand that the boundaries of what we do and study are expanding all the time. As such, each of those programs prepares students for myriad careers in academia, communication management, policy, production, and research, but they also prepare them to be consumers of media who are ethical, critical and creative. Graduates apply this newfound knowledge and skills in arts and community groups, governmental and educational institutions, major corporations, media industries, professional associations and so much more.
