Indiana University's masters and doctoral programs in Communication and Culture emphasize the cultural dimensions and implications of communication practices from oral and written language, to film, television, and digital narrative. Organized into three areas of research - rhetoric, media studies, and performance and ethnography - the curriculum brings together faculty with a broad range of backgrounds and interests within these fields and provides a solid foundation in the history and theory of each area.
The Department treats these interconnected areas of research as complementary interpretative practices that achieve their fullest potential when set in conversation with one another; our collective strength and our commitment to interdisciplinary scholarship encourages graduate students to develop uniquely productive and integrative programs of study that reach beyond traditional topical boundaries. At the same time, the breadth and expertise of our faculty enables graduate students to devote considerable focus to one or more discrete areas of intellectual inquiry.
