About Us

The Communication Leadership master’s program at the University of Washington is designed to competitively position our graduates to lead the future of professional communication. With public, private, and nonprofit appeal, and an emphasis on superb storytelling, Communication Leadership understands the core competencies our students need to succeed.

Our master’s program offers a cutting-edge curriculum and a chance to work with pioneering professional faculty in a world-class university setting. We provide our students engaged mentorship and a chance to apply skills learned in classes through transformative partnerships with key local and global organizations.

We offer two degrees on the art and science of successful communication strategies: Master of Communication in Digital Media (MCDM) and Master of Communication in Communities and Networks (MCCN). The two degrees have a common focus on superb storytelling practices that engage both online and offline audiences to effect change.

Our graduates are purposeful storytellers, inclusive community-builders, and effective, ethical advocates for people and ideas.
