Graduate students in the communication and rhetorical studies program begin with two core courses designed to introduce them to the department: Proseminar in Communication and Contemporary Theories of Rhetoric.
After these core courses (required during the first semester of M.A. coursework), students will work with their selected faculty advisors to choose from a wide variety of courses in the department and across the university to create their own unique programs of study.
