About the Graduate Program
The University of Utah Asia Campus offers a dynamic and comprehensive Communication Master's Degree program designed to equip students with practical knowledge in strategic communication. This U.S.-based program, conducted entirely in English, is tailored to meet the diverse needs of current practitioners, featuring a flexible course schedule that includes evening and weekend classes.
Located in both Seoul and Songdo, this program offers students the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in two vibrant urban environments. The small class sizes ensure a personalized and engaging learning experience, fostering close relationships between students and professors.
With a diverse and global student body, the program encourages cultural exchange and diverse perspectives. Furthermore, students benefit from close advising and faculty collaborations between the University of Utah's U.S. campus and the Asian campus, creating a rich academic environment.
The Department of Communication’s nationally ranked graduate program is distinguished by its vibrant, prolific, nationally and internationally recognized faculty, as well as a flexible but theoretically and methodologically grounded graduate curriculum that reflects our strengths within and across four areas of emphasis: Communicating Science, Health, Environment, and Risk (CommSHER); Critical/Cultural Studies; Digital Media; and Rhetoric. Graduate students are encouraged to take full advantage of the range of expertise and specialization that the Department offers by designing, in consultation with their committees, programs of study that draw upon any or all of these four areas, ensuring a tailored graduate training and education experience.
Students have the option to visit the Salt Lake City (SLC) campus in the United States, providing a broader perspective and access to additional resources. This program provides a unique blend of academic rigor, real-world application, and global connectivity, making it an attractive choice for those looking to excel in the field of communication.
