“We know that graduate credentials have a tremendous impact on an individual’s career prospects,” Scripps College of Communication Dean Scott Titsworth said. “This degree maximizes that impact by allowing students to customize their curriculum as they choose the certificates that are the best fit for them individually.”

There are currently six graduate certificates available from the college:

  • Crisis communication
  • Digital media transformation and innovation
  • Strategic communication management
  • Interacting with the media for non-journalists
  • Interacting with the media for STEM professionals
  • Communication diversity, ethics, and inclusivity
