Graduate Degree Programs

Each Master's degree program is 36 credit hours (12 classes) and is conducted entirely online.

Applicants are those with a Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution.

  • MSc Information Design & Communication
    This graduate degree program provides you with advanced knowledge and skills in persuasive communication. You can focus on verbal or visual communication or you can pursue a balanced course of study in both.
  • MSc Information & Instructional Design
    This graduate degree program delivers the advanced knowledge and skills you'll need to design and implement unique learning solutions for adults in the workplace.

Graduate Certificate Program

The graduate certificate program is 18 credit hours (6 classes) and is conducted entirely online.

Applicants are those with a Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution.

Students may not, as of Fall 2014, apply for admission to the degree program from the Graduate Certificate. Students who intend to complete the MS in IDC need to apply to the degree directly.

Graduate Certificate in Technical Communication

  • This graduate certificate program parallels the graduate degree programs. You will select from and take the same courses as those students pursuing an MSc, but you will finish in half the time. The certificate is not, however, a gateway to the degree. If you are seeking the degree, please apply to that program.

Advanced Graduate Certificate Programs

Each advanced graduate certificate program is 18 credit hours (6 classes) and is conducted entirely online.

Applicants are those who already have a master's degree from an accredited institution or a GPA of 3.5 or above in the Graduate Certificate in Technical Communication from SPSU.
