Outstanding professors, excellent students, a leading-edge interdisciplinary curriculum, and cutting-edge facilities sets the Communication and Information (C&I) master’s program apart from the rest.

Because our C&I master’s program is interdisciplinary, in addition to gaining in-depth knowledge of a concentration area, you will also be exposed to other areas of communication and information and have access to all of the nationally recognized faculty members in the College of Communication and Information.

You may choose either a project or a thesis as the capstone to your program. The master's program prepares you with tactical skills and managerial training that support work in communication organizations and related career fields. If this is your direction, you will be encouraged to pursue the project option. The master's program is also good preparation for entering a doctoral program. If you plan to pursue a doctoral degree, you will be encouraged to complete the thesis option.

As part of the C&I MS program, you will have professional and research opportunities including: applied projects, scholarships, research projects, study abroad, scholarships, and specialized labs.
