DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNICATION

The UIC Department of Communication is known for research on new technology, political communication, and diversity, culture and visual studies.

M.A. in Communication

 

The program requires two decisions early on: first a selection of an emphasis either in Media Studies or in Intercultural Communication, which should take place on or before beginning coursework, and second a selection of the thesis or non-thesis option. Thesis writers expect either to pursue doctoral study or to enter research work in industry, government, or non-profit sectors. The non-thesis option affords entry into areas such as managerial work related to communication in the educational, business, government, and non-profit sectors.


For course descriptions see the UIC Course Descriptions for Communication classes.
