Master of Science and Doctorate in Communication, Culture & Media
The MS and the PhD programs in Communication, Culture and Media (CCM) develop innovative scholars and teachers who are able to impart theories and studies on the interaction of social forces and communication. Each program trains socially engaged researchers in both quantitative and qualitative approaches in the study of media and communication. Our interdisciplinary faculty offer training in areas such as political communication (especially war and conflict), migration and media, consumer culture, theories and methods of social media, discourse and political economy, social justice issues, mobilities, fashion, popular music and style.
A DIVERSITY OF PERSPECTIVES
Both programs are designed to develop intellectuals, who can think big about media and communication without being limited by disciplinary boundaries. Thus, besides faculty specifically trained in communication, the program also draws on anthropologists, criminal justice scholars, linguists and sociologists, and offers coursework in thought from these other disciplines.
In all cases, a theoretical and even philosophical perspective is emphasized so that students obtain what they need to acquire a critical perspective. Along with marketable skills in both qualitative and quantitative research and writing, students come to possess flexibility of mind and versatility in ability.
