Prospective Graduate Students

The College of Media, Communication and Information’s (CMCI) graduate programs offer an exciting, dynamic environment in which to study. We draw students from around the world to take part in cutting-edge research, creative work and teaching. Our students engage with an innovative curriculum founded on the principles of intellectual openness, interdisciplinary inquiry, and a belief in the importance of public scholarship and creative practice.

Students have a wide range of choices with 10 graduate programs offered by CMCI’s seven units: Advertising, Public Relations and Design (APRD), Critical Media Practices (CMPD), Communication (COMM), Intermedia Arts, Writing and Performance (IAWP), Information Science (INFO), Journalism (JRNL) and Media Studies (MDST).

Faculty are committed to providing graduate students with challenging coursework, strong teaching and mentorship, dedicated professional development, and a stimulating and supportive intellectual climate. Although graduate students are admitted to a particular program, they have opportunities to take classes with students from other programs and have access to courses and faculty across the college.
