Master’s in Communication in Nevada
Nevada is home to two schools that offer master's-level communication programs. Both programs are offered in traditional on-campus formats, one in Las Vegas and the other in Reno. These programs aim to prepare students for Ph.D. programs as well as careers in communication following graduation. Major employers in Nevada that may provide employment opportunities for recent graduates include the many hotels, resorts and hospitality companies that call Las Vegas and its surrounding areas home, such as MGM Resorts International and Las Vegas Sands, two of the state's largest employers. Other employment opportunities may be found at marketing, graphic design and public relations companies based in Las Vegas, as well as local media outlets (i.e. newspapers, radio and television stations) in Las Vegas, Reno, and smaller towns nearby.
