Communication Management

The Communication Program in the Department of Organizational Sciences and Communication now offers a Master of Arts in Communication Management.

GW's MA in Communication Management explores systematic planning, implementing, monitoring and revising of communication messages and processes (including technology and networks) within and across organizations. The program is designed to meet the needs of a diverse pool of students with varying career aspirations in this growing field, and is the only degree of its kind in the Washington, D.C., metro area.

Students develop their problem-solving, strategic decision-making and written and oral advocacy skills throughout the course of the interdisciplinary program. Graduates are well-equipped to excel at communication management objectives, such as:

  • more effective leadership;
  • better flow of essential communications;
  • higher employee satisfaction;
  • stronger brand recognition and
  • increased profits.

The MA program also prepares students planning to continue to doctoral programs in communication and related disciplines, such as international affairs, organizational sciences and public health. Current GW undergraduate students may be eligible for a 10% tuition discount and have the requirement for providing GRE scores waived. See here for more details.

GW’s location in the heart of D.C. provides students with unique access to a wealth of government and media agencies, consulting firms and other notable organizations that enhance the graduate studies experience.
