Build a Buff M.A. Program

There are many reasons to further your education, but here at WT, we work with our students to ensure they receive the most out of their degree. Our curriculum provides the flexibility for you to choose courses that fit your needs and interests. The program is 36 credit hours, taking most full-time students no more than two years to complete.  

Students may choose a thesis or non-thesis route. All students build a strong research and theoretical foundation while developing applicable skills within areas of study such as corporate communication, mass communication, cultural studies, rhetoric, public relations and performance.

We strive to help students meet career goals by helping them choose courses both inside and outside the department to provide a broad base of skills. Students gain experience through internships and professional activities. 

Our curriculum is flexible, our instructors are knowledgeable, and we're sure you'll fit right in. Let us help you build a Buff M.A.
