Graduate Programs

Our graduate program invites students to pursue their academic interests in the critical study of communication. We offer a stimulating and dynamic environment, a community of students from around the world, and a faculty dedicated to fostering an environment in which students can reach their full academic potential. We offer interdisciplinary scholarship and rigorous theoretical and methodological grounding and we encourage students to develop unique programs of study that reach beyond traditional topical boundaries.

Professors in the department have strong records of achievement in scholarship and professional activity and are internationally known. All are committed to the critical analysis of communication phenomena. Our approach is primarily qualitative and many professors and graduate students are involved in research that offers a return to both the academic and the general communities.

Our faculty and programs focus on the following areas of research:

  • Social contexts of science and technology
  • Media and film studies
  • Sociocultural approaches to communication
  • Critical health studies
  • Social and global justice

Students are not limited to these areas and can choose to take their program of study in innovative directions.
