The Master of Professional Communications and Leadership is designed to further professional development through coursework in written and verbal communications skills, critical thinking, and leadership. The program is directed toward both traditional and non-traditional students who are either already in the workforce or are making the transition from ad undergraduate degree to a professional setting. Unlike traditional master’s programs, which focus on developing skills in one specific discipline, the Professional Communication and Leadership program combines the interdisciplinary nature of liberal studies with a practical focus on professional development. Students who have a firm foundation in the arts and sciences are well positioned to advance professionally, but they often need specific skills that are not covered by traditional majors. This M.A degree is designed to meet that specific need. The M.A. in Professional Communications and Leadership includes a core of courses in organizational communication, professional writing, and leadership, with elective courses available in written communication, small group communication, and conflict resolution, among others.
