The Admission & Aid section of this website was created to provide important information for students as they work to complete their degrees.
The College of Communication offers the following Master of Arts programs:
Students in any graduate program can take classes to complete the concentration in Latino Media & Communication.
Communication graduate students bring a variety of ideas and perspectives to the classroom and actively contribute to the learning environment. With over 200 active students across our programs, the College of Communication enjoys a diverse student body with regards to ethnicity, age, education, and geographic background. While many of our students studied some form of communication as a part of their undergraduate degree, our programs have also welcomed students from business, performing arts, social science, and natural science backgrounds, as well as career changers looking transition into fields of communication. Our students hail from the Chicagoland and Illinois area, a number of states (including Louisiana, Minnesota, Iowa, and Michigan), and as far and wide as Mexico, Costa Rica, South America, Germany, India, and China.
Many of our students can be found working during their graduate program in internships, part-time jobs, or full-time positions, and the majority of our classes are held at night to accommodate working students. Students are also able to determine at what pace they want to complete their graduate program and have the flexibility to transition between part-time (one course per quarter) and full-time (two courses per quarter) schedules.

The Graduate Orientation section provides information on student resources, courses and registration, policies and procedures.
