Adam Mohrbacher Speaks About his Graduate Student Career Adam Mohrbacher, MA in media and public communication, 2016. Digital and Social Media Manager, International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer
"I took away many things due to being involved in the Media, Film and Journalism Department at the University of Denver. One of the biggest was a strong understanding of media and communication theory, particularly regarding putting together strategic communications plans, understanding the methodology of persuasion and grappling with the unique challenges of communicating across cultures and nations."
Carley St. Clair Shares Her DU Experience Carley St. Clair, MA in media and public communication, 2016. Communications Specialist, DaVita Kidney Care
"When considering my graduate program, I wanted a skill set that I could apply across industries and could grow with me throughout my career. When I was assessing programs, I also wanted a small program where I could develop strong relationships with my professors and fellow students. I ultimately decided to enroll at the University of Denver because of its thoughtful approach to instill a strategic approach to communications, small program size and commitment to public service."
Michal Varga Speaks About his Graduate Student Career Michal Varga, MA in media and public communication, 2016. Manager of Creative Services, Hearing Care Solutions.
"The program's emphasis on combining theoretical and practical skills is obvious from the very first class. The Strategic Communication concentration is structured in a way that classes build upon each other, constantly expanding the theoretical background needed for successful practical implementation of a comprehensive communication strategy."
