Program Description:

The Master of Arts in Global Communications (MAGC) is a 48-credit Coursework and Research Masters taken over the course of three semesters. It may be completed in one calendar year, though students may choose to take additional time to complete their final degree requirements. 

Students graduate with a stellar profile: theoretical sophistication, skills-based mastery in key domains, and practical experience in global communications.

The digital, the global, the local
As a MAGC student, you’re encouraged to develop a layered understanding of:

  • today’s digital revolution;
  • the economic transformations caused by brand globalization;
  • the intercultural challenges associated with new media and globalization—and the development of appropriate responses by governments, corporations, and NGOs;
  • the development of communications industries, including global advertising, social networking, search engines, and image management.

You’ll study digital media development and globalization and become active world citizens in these processes. You’ll develop theoretical knowledge and critical research skills in media and communications, and receive practical hands-on training in areas including international advertising, branding, public relations, video production, and advocacy. Courses are taught by academic researchers and top practitioners in their respective fields.
