Graduate Courses and Degrees

As a matter of principle, the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences undertakes to adapt each program of study to the needs of each graduate student.  Beyond a few specific requirements, graduate students work with their graduate committees to determine the program of study that will best prepare them for their scholarly and professional careers.

With few exceptions, the requirements of the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences for the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees are identical to those of the Graduate School.  In no instance do departmental requirements supersede those of the Graduate School.  Each graduate student is responsible for ensuring that he or she meets all Graduate School requirements.
