Graduate Study at Texas A&M


The Department of Communication & Journalism at Texas A&M aims to produce well-educated graduates who are intellectually prepared to be academic professionals, as well as communication research specialists in other contexts. Because each student’s goals are unique, the graduate curriculum is intentionally flexible to accommodate individual student’s interests and promote intra/interdisciplinary inquiry. We offer small classes from nationally and internationally renowned faculty, allowing for a great deal of student-faculty interaction among the premier scholars in the field. And because our graduate faculty exemplify intellectual curiosity and excellence in scholarship, our A&M graduate students are themselves very active, productive scholars, participating frequently in professional meetings, publishing their own work, and being acknowledged for excellence in research and teaching.

The Department of Communication & Journalism offers an Accelerated Bachelor’s-to-Master’s (ABM) degree, a traditional Master of Arts degree, and a Doctoral degree. In each of these degree programs, students select coursework from the department’s emphases in Communication & Media Sciences and Humanities & Critical/Cultural Studies. Graduates from the program have developed research and teaching profiles that reflect the intra/interdisciplinary orientation of the curriculum, evidencing their abilities to adapt to a variety of positions outside of A&M.
