Communication/Nonprofit Management Certificate
Nonprofit leaders recognize the importance of communication, but few nonprofit management programs offer communication courses. At the same time, communication professionals in nonprofits recognize the importance of good management practices, but communication programs rarely offer courses in nonprofit management. The Master of Arts (MA) in Communication/Certificate in Nonprofit Management combined program fulfills this need.
|Course Locations||MA in Communication: Washington, DC and Online
Certificate in Nonprofit Management: Online
|Available 100% Online||Yes|
|Entry Terms||Fall, Spring or Summer semester|
|Degree Requirements||10 courses for MA in Communication; 4 courses for Certificate in Nonprofit Management|
Professionals with sharpened skills in the social science of communication will be able to apply those skills to mission-driven, nonprofit organizations. Upon graduating from the combined program, individuals will be well prepared to lead their nonprofit employers in designing and implementing communication campaigns that promote reforms in public policy, mobilize constituencies to lobby their elected officials, advance their goals through public and media relations, or change behaviors in ways that improve the health, well-being and public safety of all.
Even if students pursue careers in the corporate or public sectors, they are highly likely to interact with nonprofit or nongovernmental organizations or serve on nonprofit boards of directors. All of these roles require an understanding of the impact of nonprofits in the U.S. and other countries, and the principles and challenges of managing them, including what it means to supervise a volunteer work force and raise money through the generosity of others.
