Howard University, School of Communications
Focusing on areas of importance in an emerging digital and multicultural world, the Communication, Culture, & Media Studies doctoral program at Howard University is designed to train scholars and other academic leaders to contribute to the interdisciplinary scholarship of communication with a particular emphasis in multicultural and mediated communication. Offering core competencies in research strategies (qualitative, quantitative, and critical), theory and methodology, the doctor of philosophy program seeks to prepare students in the scholarly fields of communications. This interdisciplinary field incorporates concerns about culture, technology, policy, ownership, gender and racial equality, national development, persuasion, marketing, health and other issues. In an effort to fulfill the university's mission, the graduate curriculum emphasizes multiculturalism, global issues and social justice concerns.
