The Department of Communication offers four graduate degrees for students interested in exploring the meaning, significance, and process of communication.
Students without an M.A. degree in communication or a related field should apply to the M.A. program or to the M.A./Ph.D. program (in which students receive an M.A. on the way to getting a Ph.D.). Students with an M.A. degree in communication or a related field must apply directly to our Ph.D. program.
Requires 45 credits, including project and oral presentation of project. This degree is a more narrowly focused M.C., and it is jointly sponsored by the Department of Communication and American Indian Studies. It is designed for documentary filmmakers who focus their work on subjects that have special relevance to the Native American community. Visit the Native Voices web site for more information or contact Daniel Hart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This 45-credit degree program gives professionals the tools to understand the fast-changing world of media technology and distribution. MCDM students study the economic, political, social and cultural impact of communication technologies. Classes meet in the evening or weekends to fit the schedule of working professionals. Most students are mid-career professionals, though no digital media work experience is required. The program is jointly offered through UW Educational Outreach, which has tuition rates that differ from those of daytime programs.
