The Communication Studies MA program offered at San Francisco State University helps students to develop skills essential for leadership and career development, and for understanding and interpreting events. They learn to advocate and critically debate ideas in social and political settings, appreciate diverse communication styles, work productively in task-oriented groups, and engage in rewarding interpersonal relationships.
Graduates in communication studies have an excellent track record entering their chosen career fields and attending graduate and professional schools. Our graduates have secured positions as public relations managers, human resources trainers, employment recruiting specialists, marketing representatives, civil rights activists, campaign managers, and sales representatives, among others. Advisors can assist students in planning programs of study that are attractive to graduate schools and prospective employers.
The department's internship program has helped many students begin their careers. The program offers over 200 internship and service learning opportunities.
