Our Early Assurance Journalism and Early Assurance Communication programs guarantee qualified high school seniors' placement in one of three SBU master's degree programs.
Our early assurance programs let you lock down your seat in a master's degree program as a qualifying incoming freshman. You begin taking graduate-level courses during your senior year of undergraduate studies.
Not only does this provide a financial savings on the overall cost of the master's degree, but because the master's programs are fully online, you have the opportunity to work and earn a salary while completing your master's degree.
Our M.A. Communication program is designed to help you cultivate the knowledge and skills required for success as an innovative leader in the increasingly important world of professional communications. You will tailor your master's degree with a specialization in one of three areas:
- integrated marketing communication
- content marketing
- public relations
