Employers rank communication as the top skill they seek in employees and say it is a must for career development. The Master of Professional Communication (MPC) degree emphasizes advanced communication knowledge and skills necessary to produce effective leaders, managers, and organizational members in for-profit, government or non-profit organizations. Students receive instruction in team building and facilitation, organizational leadership, strategic communication, and in the measurement and evaluation of communication messages. They will also develop or continue to develop their proficiency in professional writing, presenting, communicating visually, and in using new media. The program allows students to customize their curriculum and facilitate development of a plan of study uniquely tailored to personal career goals by selecting a number of elective courses of their choosing within the field of communication or from related fields such as business, education, and health professions. The MPC degree culminates with a professional project or thesis designed specifically to enhance students’ career goals. Courses in the two-year program blend classroom instruction with online educational tools to fit into the schedules of busy professionals.
