B.A. to M.A. Program in Strategic Communication

Open only to selected High Point University students

If you have any questions about the application process please email Dr. Virginia McDermott at ginny@highpoint.edu.

The BA to MA program in Strategic Communication is a selective and demanding option that allows students pursuing an undergraduate degree at High Point University to complete an undergraduate degree in any major and a Master’s Degree in Strategic Communication within a five-year time frame. Students can complete an undergraduate major, apply for admission into the MA program in their junior year, begin taking graduate-level courses in their senior year, and complete their MA in their 5th year.

Our MA program in strategic communication focuses on three areas: public relations, health communication, and political communication. The program provides students the skills to design, develop, implement, and evaluate communication campaigns.  By communication campaigns, we mean a plan designed to address a problem—a health risk behavior, an image or credibility problem, or any communication issues that exist. Graduates from our program will have the skills to enter into a variety of careers, including careers as communication strategists for organizations, political groups, universities, and non-profits; campaign managers; political consultants; marketing researchers; public relations executives; and any other career that involves analyzing audiences and creating messages.
