M.A. - Corporate and Multicultural Communication; M.A. - Public Relations and Advertising; B.A./M.A
The Corporate Communication track focuses on communication challenges specific to business and organizational settings. It teaches students to understand and manage the broad communication processes within organizations while enabling them to develop their individual skills as communicators. Multicultural Communication focuses on the dynamics of communication across cultures. It explores not only what happens when people of two different national cultures meet, but also what happens when people from a variety of cultures and ethnicities come together in one organization, community or country. The Master of Arts in Public Relations and Advertising offers students the opportunity to explore the theoretical and practical aspects of these related disciplines. The program is designed to produce professionally competent, socially responsible and globally conscious practitioners in public relations and advertising. Students can also choose a combined B.A./M.A. degree program to be completed in five years. Students will complete the M. A. degree in the fifth year in a multicultural or corporate concentration or a combined concentration of their own choice.
