Communication is an interdisciplinary field that examines humanistic and behavioral approaches to communication. Because it is interdisciplinary, students from many different professional and academic backgrounds pursue a Communication PhD degree. Students of the Communication PhD program demonstrate their curiosity about how communication and the exchange of information works, cultural symbols and the statements they make, and their ability to conduct quality research.
A Communication PhD is a social science, requiring intensive research of the processes and effects of communication. Many graduates holding a Communication PhD go on to careers in academia, research, or communication related positions where strong research skills are required.
A Communication PhD program requires curriculum in the core courses of statistics, communication theory, and empirical methods as well as courses in a specialization area. Some examples of specialization areas are law, ethics, online communities, politics, youth, and information technology. Communication PhD programs may also include seminars, projects, and some may require candidates to teach. After developing a specialization area and conducting intensive research, students must complete a dissertation to be defended in front of a panel of experts in the field.
