The Master of Arts in Communication, Media and Theatre program is designed to provide advanced study of communication research and the principles and practices of communication, media, and theatre. All newly admitted students begin coursework in the fall semester.

Is this for me?

This program is designed for students interested in advanced corporate positions, teachers of communication at the secondary level, elementary school teachers, candidates for teaching positions in higher education, and as a preparation for further graduate study.


This program would appeal to anyone interested in human interaction, critical thinking, and intercultural communication; mass communication, media literacy, film studies, and new technology; and performance, theatre literature, and theatre management. The program would also appeal to anyone interested in conducting and evaluating research and anyone wanting to teach communication, media, and theatre courses at the high school or college level.
