Welcome to our Graduate Program
Our department offers graduate programs in Interpersonal & Health and Rhetorical Studies. Our Double Dawg, MA, and PhD programs offer study of personal, public, and political communication. Graduates can pursue professional or academic careers.
Research is a central focus in all coursework and training at the M.A. and Ph.D. level. In both areas of specialization, students work closely with faculty to become successful teachers, independent scholars, and innovative researchers with the ability both to produce new knowledge about communication and to effectively share.
