The Master of Arts in Contemporary Communication is a broad-based program for students seeking graduate education across a spectrum of communication approaches. This program is designed for those focusing on creative expression and/or pursuing professional development in strategic communications. The program allows students options to explore their needs, interests and goals, ranging from development of communication skills to entrepreneurial communication. A student may choose to focus on creative communication or strategic communication or a blend of the two.

The program integrates the liberal arts and skills such as critical thinking, effective writing, oral presentations, and collaborative learning.
