The Johns Hopkins MA in Communication provides a cutting-edge curriculum that integrates digital technology with innovative strategic communication and strong writing skills. The program offers concentrations in public and media relations, political communication, health communication, digital communication, and corporate/non-profit communication.

In our core courses, you’ll learn to conduct and read primary research to create powerful messages and design and implement the most effective communication campaigns possible. Combining best practices with what research shows is effective communication gives our Master of Arts in Communication graduates a competitive advantage in the workplace.

Students from anywhere can earn their MA in Communication on-ground or online. Those who live in the Washington metropolitan area can attend class on-ground at our Washington, DC center. Most classes take place on weekday evenings; a few occur on Saturday mornings. Our location is within walking distance from the Dupont Circle Metro stop, and reduced rate garage parking is available.

In addition, anyone around the globe can go online. Some students take all of their courses online, others are on-ground during one semester and online during another semester, and others mix on-ground and online during the same semester. Admission and course requirements for online are the same as that for on-ground. Students do not have to attend any courses, workshops, seminars, or other events on-ground. Students access their online courses through Blackboard on the web 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Watch this video, which gives a tour of an online course.

The schedule is flexible. The MA in Communication degree requires at least 10 courses. Most students can start and continue their studies during the spring, summer, or fall. Those who work full-time can take one to two courses per semester, and those working part-time or not at all can take three to four courses per semester. Students can take up to five years to earn their degree; on average, they take about two years.
