Health Communication Program Description
The proposed program is designed to be completed in one year; all courses will be online. Its focus on the application of new and emerging trends in communication and communication technologies in health and healthcare renders the program unique. The program addresses a diverse group of potential students including working professionals in the health care and related fields, recent college graduates, and those generally interested in communication and health care. Given the pervasive impact of new and emerging media, and the growing complexity in the ways in which professionals use media in their professional life, the program provides them with directly applicable skills and knowledge to various aspects of healthcare management.
