Masters in Human Communication and Social Influence [abbreviated MA in sub-documents headings]
The Masters in Human Communication and Social Influence fosters the advanced study of Rhetoric and Interpersonal Communication. Our faculty in Interpersonal Communication are interested in media portrayals of interpersonal relationships, particularly those involving older Americans. Our faculty in Rhetoric are interested in the intersection of public persuasion and issues of national identity. The M.A. in Human Communication and Social Influence can be pursued as an end in itself (for example, working as a Communication Consultant or Speechwriter), and is also a stepping stone for pursuing the doctorate.
