Major Adviser: Sandra L. Herndon, Chair of Graduate Program,

The master of science degree program in the Department of Organizational Communication, Learning, and Design of the Roy H. Park School of Communications prepares graduates to pursue professional careers as organizational communication and learning system designers and managers. Alumni of the program include media producers and communication managers in business, education, and human services; instructional designers; marketing media and public relations specialists; trainers; independent consultants and producers; and communication analysts. Students from all disciplines and professions are encouraged to apply to the communications program.

In addition to the courses described below, our Selected Topics and Contemporary Issues courses regularly offer opportunities to study such topics as technical communication, global communication and learning, and integrated marketing and training strategies. We also sponsor a speaker series that brings noted researchers and practitioners to campus to meet and address our students and faculty.

The Roy H. Park School of Communications is housed in an attractive facility that includes an interactive media and website development lab, desktop publishing and computer-based presentation support media systems, television studios, teleconferencing units, video field production and digital postproduction equipment, processing and printing rooms for color and black-and-white film, digital photo and audio labs, computer-based research and writing facilities, and a graduate student office and computer lab. These facilities, plus a faculty actively engaged in current research and practice, allow students to pursue interests in the areas of

    organizational communication
    multimedia, Internet, and intranet site development
    organizational video and teleconferencing
    computer-assisted learning and electronic performance support tools
    design of learning systems and promotional campaigns
    communication technology assessment
    communication consulting and management
    print and graphics design and layout
    organizational culture and diversity
