Michigan State University has a new graduate program designed to educate students in both the theory and practice of health communication. The M.A. Program in Health & Risk Communication, co-sponsored by the College of Communication Arts and Sciences and the College of Human Medicine, prepares students to design, implement, and evaluate health communication materials for local, state, or national organizations.
Students complete core courses in the following areas: Mass Communication and Public Health, Health Communication for Diverse Populations, Research Methods, Health and Science Writing, Media Relations, Introduction to Descriptive and Analytical Epidemiology, and an internship in the field of health communication. Students also choose health related electives from several departments on campus and complete a comprehensive exam as the final requirement of this 33 credit program.
