Why Choose Villanova?

The Communication Department at Villanova University offers a program of study leading to a Master of Arts in Communication, as well as five Graduate Certificates.

Your course work in Graduate Studies in Communication are organized around three focal concerns: principles, practices and contexts. Principles courses emphasize the overarching philosophical, ethical, and methodological issues relevant to the study and practice of communication in multiple contexts. Practices courses focus on the strategic application of communication principles to the creation of messages within particular contexts. Contexts courses concern the places, spaces, situations, and modalities within which principled communication has significant impact.

We are committed to offering small classes in which students interact with our nationally and international recognized faculty in a supportive, student-centered learning environment. We value a diverse, dynamic community committed to participating in our ongoing conversation about the role of communication in creating and maintaining a just society.
