Re: [americancomm] Hello
- Typically speaking, the Master of Science degree reflects the social science approach (quantitative in nature) to the communication discipline, versus the liberal arts (qualitative) strategy. Of course, your mileage may vary on this issue, "shops" tend to attempt to scientize communication in some places, even though the focus should inherently be artistic in approach.

I received my MA in Corporate Communication from Austin Peay State University in Tennessee. Our university offers two graduate level communication programs, General Communication and Corporate Communication. Both, however, are MA degrees. I wasn't aware that an MS was that common!

I received an MS from ULL and to the best of my knowledge they didn't offer and MA, so Johns question has made me wonder if I am a rarity in the communication field
“Each of us is in essence like a rubber band ball. Culture is developed as if adding one rubber band after another. Some rubber bands are wide and comforting; some are thin, tight and painful, with a variety of sizes in-between adding to the construction. Each new rubber band changes the mass, density and dimension of the ball and how it will react to outside stimuli, just as the layers of culture change how we as humans react to situations.”

I'm not familiar with many MS degrees in Comm. Does your school also offer an MA degree? Can you tell us how they differ?
