Online Master's Program
The Department of Communication is committed to instructional innovation and technological advancement by offering an online master's degree program. Currently, sufficient classes to complete the master's degree are online and available for students. Additional courses are in the planning stages.
Online courses are equivalent to on-site classes, with similar rigor and expectations regarding student performance. There are two types of online classes. Traditional online classes are asynchronous and allow students flexibility in completing assignments and readings. Hybrid online classes require students to video chat with the professor and others students once a week for 2 1/2 hours, much like a face-to-face class. A strong Internet connection and video conferencing tools (e.g., microphone, webcam) are required to take these classes, which may also require an additional technology fee. It is assumed that students will need to take both types of classes in order to complete an online master’s degree.
