What types of events are sponsored by the department?
The department sponsors many events each semester: the fall Graduate Conference, the Media, Culture, and Communication Speaker Series, Study Abroad Informational Sessions, and workshops about MA student opportunities such as the MA Thesis or PhD-bound Q&A. These offerings are posted on the our MA bulletin board and serve to enrich the learning environment, stimulate thought and discussion, share information about the process of scholarly inquiry and post-MA options, and magnify the connections between the allied disciplines that inform the study of culture and communication. Some of your time as an MA student will be in the classroom. We encourage you to use the remaining out-of-classroom time to participate in departmental activities, events, conferences, and workshops that will supplement your course of study.
