Communication Studies, MA Program at UNCG Accepting Applicants

The Communication Studies faculty at The U of North Carolina at Greensboro invites applications for our Master of Arts program. Established in 1968, our program has a deep and rich tradition of mentoring students in the research, teaching, and practice of communication. Students regularly present their ideas at regional and national conferences. Several have published their work in scholarly journals. Our graduate alumni have successful careers in higher education, health care administration, non-profit community work, training and organizational development, marketing, and media relations, among others. Because we enroll about twelve new students per year, we offer a high level of student-faculty interaction. We pride ourselves on making the UNCG graduate school experience a challenging and rewarding one.

We provide a course of study centered on our belief that communication is formative and foundational to human identities, relationships, and communities, and that ethical and strategic communication provides the means to critique, construct, and transform identities, relationships, and communities. Teaching assistantships include a stipend, support for health insurance coverage, and, usually, a tuition waiver. Students with experience working in a Speaking Center may find funding available through the UNCG Speaking Center.

For fall admission, the deadline for those seeking assistantship and fellowship funding is 1 March 2013. Our final application deadline is 1 April 2013. Questions may be directed to David Carlone, Director of Graduate Studies, at david_carlone@uncg.edu.
