"The new degree program aligns with the most in-demand skills required of communication professionals today such as: content marketing, public relations, experiential marketing, and making meaning from data,” Heather Harris, program director for Master of Arts in Communication, said. “It is a high-value, high-quality learning experience that instills creative, strategic, and actionable knowledge for today’s vast communication landscape.”

St. Bonaventure’s School of Communication is accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC) and is just one of three ACEJMC schools offering accredited online graduate programs.

Now accepting applications for its first term in January, the Master of Arts in Communication program is taught 100 percent online and was designed to reflect the real world where information, data, and communication interact, helping students cultivate interdisciplinary knowledge.
