Effective communication is becoming increasingly important as companies continue to expand both nationally and globally. Choosing to study to earn a master’s in communications should equip you with the skills necessary to effectively communicate a company’s initiatives and agenda—both internally and externally.
There are many different subject areas under the communications umbrella including: strategic communications, journalism, broadcast journalism, multimedia and public relations. The area you choose to focus on will determine the exact course of study, but all of them will prepare you with the skills necessary to craft a narrative.
