The Graduate Program in the School of Communication offers an exciting and dynamic environment in which to study. We draw our student population from around the world, a fact that testifies to both the importance of advanced research in communication studies and to the international reputation Simon Fraser University enjoys in the field of communication. The Graduate Program boasts of an energetic and enthusiastic faculty dedicated to the development of global citizens who will put their education to work in progressive, meaningful causes. The School is committed to providing a varied and relevant curriculum; diligent mentorship and supervision; and myriad opportunities for dialogue, the sharing of research interests, and professional development.
The School’s Graduate Program has an enviable record of seeing its graduates find positions in universities, colleges, research institutes, and government. Our graduate students are engaged in critical, cutting-edge research in fields ranging from cultural studies, to political economy, to the philosophy of technology. Indeed, the breadth of scholarship that characterizes the School’s Graduate Program is one of the hallmarks of the Program’s reputation for excellence on an international scale, a reputation that continues to grow as the School negotiates the many innovative directions in which our students are constantly moving. We are in every sense committed to the principles of teaching excellence; the imperative for a nuanced, critical analysis of contemporary culture; and the fostering of an intellectual climate in which our students can realize their full intellectual potential.
With the addition of an innovative Master of Arts Double Degree Program in Global Communication commencing in Fall 2013, in partnership with the Communication University of China, the School’s Graduate Program is positioned to be a world leader in global communication education in the Twenty-First Century.
