The master of arts in digital communication (M.A.D.C.) is an online program that offers a rigorous and unique curriculum enabling journalists and communication professionals to prepare for leadership positions in new media, journalism, advertising, public relations, and internal communication. The M.A.D.C. provides students with the knowledge and skills to solve communication problems using the new media tools that are transforming business practices. The M.A.D.C. draws on the expertise of the school's acclaimed faculty to position students for leadership roles in digital media and communication.The M.A.D.C. program admits one group of no more than 20 students each fall. Each entering class progresses through the program together over a 2.5 year period. Classes are intentionally small with an emphasis on interaction between faculty and students.
Courses use an asynchronous course management system, which means that students are not required to gather online for class at specific times. The M.A.D.C. does feature one-hour synchronous sessions in some courses. These sessions are recorded for students to watch on their own time if they are unable to attend in real time. M.A.D.C. students also are required to attend two on-campus residencies: a two-day orientation and a weeklong summer residency between the first and the second year of the program.
