Catalog descriptions frequently lag behind course development, especially in a department with a dynamic program. The sample course booklets below give prospective graduate students a description of recent course offerings. Not every course listed here is offered on a regular rotation, though one can expect that most of these courses will be offered in any two-year period. Pay special attention to the variable topic courses (i.e., 496, 529, and 538); some of the variable topic classes listed here may be one-time-only offerings, but others are likely to be taught more regularly. Courses that are cross-listed with other departments are described here only if taught by Communication department faculty.
Courses numbered 400-499 are typically open to advanced undergraduates as well as graduate students. Courses numbered 500 and above are open only to graduate students.
