Hofstra University’s School of Communication offers a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Rhetorical Studies designed both for students intending to pursue a doctorate and for those for whom a master’s will be the final degree.
Students receive individual attention from faculty and have considerable flexibility in tailoring a course of study to meet their individual needs. The program welcomes part-time students, and most classes are scheduled in the evening to accommodate those with daytime employment.
Students may concentrate either in Rhetorical Studies or in Performance Studies. In addition, students may choose a secondary related area outside the School of Communication, such as political science, history, English or comparative literature.
The master of arts is granted upon completion of either a final project or a thesis.
