Message from Dean Gayeski

Our M.S. in Communications Innovation (MSCI)  is designed for high-potential professionals who want to leverage their real-world expertise and become innovation leaders in their field.  Our students apply learning and new insight immediately with our faculty with a rich history in teaching leading-edge communication.

MSCI is designed for highly motivated people from all aspects of the communication profession including cable television, journalism, sports media, film, digital media, educational  media, public relations, and marketing communications.  Together they build the skill-set and relationships to successfully  design, propose, and manage the next generation of innovation. 

The coursework for the M.S. degree program is based on 32 credit hours over  two-years, with most of the courses being online and asynchronous so it fits into the busy schedules of working professionals.   The time commitment is approximately 7 to 10 hours per week.  The degree also requires participation in several "destination intensive" courses taught in different locations over long weekends focusing on collaboration with organizations involved in various aspects of emerging ideas and practice.

The combination of the students’ diversity and experience leads to the formation of a talented "Think Tank" that strengthens both the teaching and learning processes by sharing best practices and lessons learned. No other intensive, two-year (MS) program in Communication Innovation offers such unfettered access to courses, global thought leaders and faculty.

I invite you to innovate with us.

 

Best regards,

Diane Gayeski, Ph.D.

Dean and Professor of Strategic Communications
