A holistic approach to application evaluationThe MSC programs attract students who show a life-long interest in learning and professional development. Because the programs suit a wide variety of industries and careers, we actively seek students with a diversity of experience.
Because our graduate communication programs are focused and highly interactive, we look for students who will add value to their cohort through their experience, perspective, and academic excellence. Each application is reviewed in a holistic context, including a professional resume, academic transcript(s), two letters of recommendation, and an interview with a member of the admissions committee.
Application DeadlinesAdmission is competitive, and space in the MSC cohorts is filled quickly by qualified applicants; applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible.

“This program is incredible, and I am always promoting the MSC to friends and colleagues. It was totally worth the time and investment, and has already begun to pay off within my first year of graduating, with a new position and a new network.”
– Brandi Snodgrass, Class of 2015
Our application is built around asking the question, “What will you contribute to the cohort?” As such, we do not require a GRE or GMAT and ask only for your resume, academic transcripts, letters of recommendation, and an interview.
Upcoming Admissions Events
During this highly interactive day prospective students will participate in a panel presentation with alumni and staff where they will learn more about the history, philosophy, demographics and curriculum of MSC. They will have lunch with current students and then wrap up their day with a professor leading a class simulating the experience of a real MSC classroom.
Full Events Calendar
Prospective students are invited to join us to experience the program in person. You will join the current cohort of students by socializing, attending class and eating lunch to get first hand exposure to the MSC.
