The business world is changing at an unprecedented pace.

Big data becomes more manageable with this specialized, 33-credit program, designed for students and professionals who seek leadership positions that require a deep understanding of sophisticated analytics. In today's evolving business world, mastery of these quantitative skills – and the ability to apply them to the most difficult challenges – is in high demand.
The word "leader" is freely tossed around, but there are few people who rise to the challenge and become true, effective leaders in their organizations. Our graduate-level organizational leadership program places an emphasis on the self-awareness and understanding of others necessary to become a good leader, and then focuses on ethics, communication and strategic thinking and analysis. Students in this program may choose one of four professional focus tracks: health care management, human resource leadership, public service/nonprofit leadership, or strategic leadership.
School of Communications
In the digital world, change occurs at an extraordinary pace, more than in any other industry. The MS in interactive media helps professionals prepare for those changes by creating innovative thinkers and teaching emerging technological skills that students can immediately implement on the job. Students have the option to pursue a multimedia production concentration, social media concentration, user experience design concentration or a their own custom concentration.
Modern journalism requires a different kind of writer – someone who is able to tell the full story in the most concise manner possible, yet can also master long-form writing and create rich, robust content. The MS in journalism (online writing track) prepares students for careers in broadcast/multimedia news and in traditional and emerging media companies. Ethics, objectivity and balance provide an essential backbone to every skill and theory taught in the program.
Sports journalism has and continues to change exponentially. With a master of science in sports journalism, students learn the skills needed to stay on the cutting-edge of the field. They learn to use reason, analysis and advanced writing techniques to formulate relevant, engaging stories on the games, athletes, and cultural and social influences that surround amateur, collegiate and professional sports.

Students in this program may choose one of the following specializations: design and development of online learning, technology for the K-12 classroom or instructional design for corporate or nonprofit environments.
The MS in teacher leadership program is ideal for teachers who are ready to evolve into leaders.
