Our Master of Arts Program offers a combination of traditional and emerging study areas relevant to an ever-changing global environment that continually challenges what we think we know, and prompts us to think differently. At the heart of our Master of Arts Program is the development of advanced writing and presentation skills, and the ability to conduct your own research in pursuit of your own projects. Whether you are looking for a career in management, community development, journalism or communications, or whether you are looking for a chance to hone your research, communicative and analytical skills, this degree will help you achieve your goals.
