After a four-day residency on our St. Paul campus to start the program, students complete the remaining courses in an online format.
As a MAISCE student, you will cultivate your own quest for communication equity for your constituents. You'll gain theoretical knowledge about the linguistic, political, and organizational factors that shape communication in society, and you'll be challenged to apply this knowledge and advance communication equity in your own work and research.
Three primary learning domains will be integrated across your coursework:
linguistic and cultural competence
ethical, social, and political leadership
critical inquiry and creative action
To complete the graduate degree, you will apply your knowledge of communication equity in the design and implementation of an original thesis or action research project — a hands-on, real-world scholarly project with direct applications to your professional work.
