Why M.S. in International Communication?

In the complex and rapidly evolving global media landscape, International dimensions of communication are increasingly important for companies and non-profit organizations alike. Issues such as transnational advocacy, sustainable development, and human rights, will impact not only transnational entities, also national and local organizations.

International Communication is an emerging description in the global market. St. John’s Master of Science in International Communication explores communication as an indispensable tool for media management, strategic planning, human resources, policy-making, and public relations in the corporate, non-profit, and public sectors.
