3 Disciplines – 1 Masters Degree
Dr. Rebecca Curnalia, MIC Program Director.
Communication – Professional & Technical Writing – Marketing
The skills taught in this program will equip you to handle the demands of today’s complex and evolving professional environment. We know that you are multitasking more than ever before. You are expected to know about more – more about options for communicating, more about communicating with diverse populations, and more about communication across various industries. With this degree, you will cross the traditional academic boundaries of knowledge and skill-sets. With the MIC degree in hand, you will be better prepared to communicate professionally in traditional and emerging contexts – both face-to-face, and computer-mediated.
The MIC degree is exactly what employers are looking for in new employees, and we teach skills that current employees would need to advance in an organization. We surveyed national and international employers, for-profit and not-for-profit agencies, and several Fortune 500 companies before creating this program. What did we find? For one, there is a strong interest in a new, professional masters program. On average, these employers indicated being very interested in their employees gaining further training in all subject areas such as oral communication, presentational skills, writing and editing, and public relations and marketing.
We built this degree program around employers’ needs. So, in many way, the MIC degree is an asset to you and your employer. Our courses are designed to make you more marketable as a job applicant, and to meet the needs of modern organizations – whether you’re looking to advance in your current job, be retrained, or move on to another position. You will hone skills essential to long-term professional success.
