The goal of the Mass Communication Studies program at University of Houston is to produce graduate students who are able to move effectively into professional media positions, advance their current careers, teach in junior colleges or high schools, or enter into top doctoral programs.
To date, our school has placed graduates into top-ranked Ph.D. programs as well as into non-academic positions in both public and private institutions. Regardless of the career goal, the graduate program broadens each student’s communication expertise through courses that improve conceptual, applied, and research skills - all of which are critical for successful careers in today’s information-oriented and changing global society.
The Master in Mass Communication Studies focuses on the development of modern media systems and their impact on society, and examines ways in which the media contribute and respond to political, social and economic issues.
