About

Our Communication Studies program at University of North Carolina Greensboro offers a course of study centered around our belief that communication is formative and foundational to human identities, relationships, and communities, and that ethical and strategically effective communication can be the means of critiquing, constructing, and transforming identities, relationships, and communities.

Overview

Admission to our Communication Studies program at University of North Carolina Greensboro is based on the evaluation of transcripts, GRE scores, letters of recommendation, an academic writing sample, a personal statement, and an interview.  We do not have automatic GRE cutoffs. We assess the entire application for academic ability and fit with our program.

Assistantships include a stipend, a contribution toward health insurance coverage, and, usually, a tuition waiver.  Teaching assistants help teach our CST 105: Introduction to Communication Studies speaking-intensive course. Graduate assistants work with faculty in support of journal editing and research projects. (If you have experience working in a Speaking Center, there may be assistantship funding available through the UNCG Speaking Center.)
