In Spring of 2018, our program specializing in Public Interest will officially launch. Equipping students with the skills they need to drive positive social change through strategic communication, the Public Interest degree will allow graduates to build movements and spearhead change. This degree offers you the opportunity to develop the skills, strategies, theory and techniques required to build movements and drive positive social change using strategic communications.
This interdisciplinary program gives students both academic and practical work and draws from public relations, journalism, advertising, psychology, sociology, political science, anthropology and neuroscience, and places an emphasis on persuasion, working across organizations and sectors, systems-level thinking, strategic planning and the core skills critical to any effective social change effort.
The online master's program is a challenging, enjoyable, rewarding program that changed my perspective on communication. The courses kept my brains working, the class discussions forced me to see different views and best of all I was able to share my cultural experiences.Avion Ashton
