Prepare for New Opportunities and Advance Your Career on Your Time

Do you want to enhance your skills and resume in the work place? Do you want to pivot from your current career into the communications field? 

The University of Tennessee is launching an asynchronous online concentration in strategic and digital communication, starting Fall 2020. The Strategic and Digital Communication MS is one of the only graduate online concentrations in the country that cuts across the College of Communication and Information’s disciplinary areas and courses build upon what all of CCI’s Schools—Advertising & Public Relations, Communication Studies, Information Sciences, and Journalism & Electronic Media—bring to the competitive job market.

What does that mean for you?

Wherever you are in your career, the Online Master’s coursework provides training in strategic communications, management and workplace leadership, and digital platform tools and research.

The strategic and digital communication concentration is practitioner focused and provides stand-alone courses that are asynchronous and fully online, meaning you can fit lessons into your busy schedule. Each of CCI’s schools offers three courses that focus on communication strategies and the digital marketplace. Two courses are offered in Fall 2020 and at two course a semester, including summer session, you could complete your degree program in two years.

Admission Requirements

The program requires 30 graduate credit hours. Students are admitted every semester, so you can enroll when you are ready. All undergraduate degrees are welcome. The GRE Test is NOT required for this online concentration, but all applicants must meet UT Graduate School academic requirements.
