Welcome to the Department of Communication, Culture and Media Studies, the only doctoral level program in Communications at an HBCU. The study of communication remains a most vital field and our interdisciplinary approach makes possible innovative and transformative research.
We offer three tracks in CCMS: Health Communication, Technology, Policy and Society; and Media and Cultural Studies, each fulfilling the mission of Howard University to develop scholars and professionals who drive change and engage in scholarship that provides solutions to contemporary global problems. Our location in Washington DC as a governmental, health, and media hub provides unique opportunities for study and experience with a world-class faculty committed to student success.
Our students are drawn from across the globe, representing a variety of ethnicities, races, genders, backgrounds, and interests. Our alumni go on to successful careers in academia as scholars and administrators, and to private industry, government, and NGOs as researchers, consultants, and policy analysts.
