Getting an edge in your profession – Top 10 Schools for Communication

Image Source:

You may want to further enhance your career with an education in the field of communications. As a lover for words, languages, meanings and culture, I always look out for possibilities to venture into some well-recognized institutions in the United States so to learn more about the fascinating world of communications.

Here are some grad schools that I’d recommend for their prestige foundation in molding communications graduates and their contribution to research. Know that I am not “advertising” for them but just thought this may help to clear out some fog for those in the mist of advancing their education: (in not particular order)

  1. Northwestern University
  2. Syracuse University (CRS / Advertising)
  3. Michigan State University
  4. University of Texas at Austin
  5. University of Missouri – Columbia
  6. University of Colorado at Boulder
  7. University of Iowa (Communication Studies / Journalism)
  8. University of Florida
  9. University of Miami
  10. University of Southern California

These schools have significantly produced communcation graduates (in vast areas, including media studies, advertising & PR, broadcasting and journalism, and communication studies/human communications) with relatively large communication/journalism programs. The links in this post will direct you to the communication departments of these institutions.

Hope you find this helpful. Of course, if you know of some schools that I have left out, of which are good for the readers, please leave a note below so we all can share it.
