Located in the heart of Washington, D.C., the Department of Organizational Sciences and Communication provides graduate students with access to countless government and media agencies, consulting firms and organizations. The department offers three graduate degree options: the MA in Communication Management, the MA in Organizational Sciences and the PhD in Industrial-Organizational Psychology.

Through small classes, research and internship experience, graduate students learn to connect the dots between communication theory and objectives like employee satisfaction. They apply theory to practical situations like personnel selection, motivation and cultural workplace training. And they cultivate crucial skills for today’s workplace, examining how people inform, influence and persuade each other.

"This program really teaches you a different perspective on the business world. We don’t just study the traditional way of looking at things, but we go beyond that into academic topics, as well as experiences from our work."
