San Diego State University’s communication master’s program was recently ranked No. 6 in the nation and No. 11 in the world according to a report by EDUniversal.

Director of the School of Communication, Bill Snavely credits the program’s success to a combination of committed students, a strong faculty, and a history of strong leadership.

“This program has traditionally been recognized as a top master’s-only program in communication," Snavely said. “We have Ph.D caliber faculty who mold our students, and as a result are some of the most highly sought after in the industry and the profession.”
