Our early assurance journalism and early assurance communication programs secure placement for interested high school seniors and transfer students 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 an incoming freshman or transfer student provided you maintain good standing in the undergraduate program and meet the graduate program's academic admission requirements.
This not only provides 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
