Communication Management (MA)
Beyond the Classroom
Starting on your first day at Emerson, you will begin to build a strong network of peers and faculty of varied backgrounds and experience, which will lay the groundwork for internship opportunities throughout the duration of your program, as well as full-time employment opportunities upon completion. Emerson has long-standing relationships with many corporate, nonprofit/charitable, and government organizations throughout Boston, as well as New York City and Washington, D.C., which afford our students outstanding internship and employment opportunities. Students can take advantage of our extensive alumni network as well as professional connections of faculty working in research and consulting.
Your Graduate Program Director, Linda Gallant, will serve as your primary faculty advisor, guiding you on course selection to ensure that you will both achieve your learning objectives and satisfy the program requirements. Your program director will work with you one-on-one to suit your education needs and set you up for success for your capstone project. You will also receive program and department news from your program director along with any on- and off-campus opportunities that might be of interest to you.
Learning from teachers who are themselves working professionals in the areas of public relations, advertising, digital media, campaign management, public affairs, public diplomacy, sports communication, and content creation, provides you with direct access to the most timely and progressive strategies and insights in communication management.
