OFFICIAL WORDS
The Communication Studies Department at the University of Minnesota
encourages students interested in pursuing an MA or PhD to apply to our
program. We have a highly regarded faculty with diverse areas of expertise.
Graduate students concentrate in communication theory, rhetorical studies,
and/or critical media studies, and are afforded considerable flexibility in
crafting a course of study that matches their individual scholarly
interests. The department also has an excellent track record of both having
students complete their degrees in a timely fashion and seeing those
students placed in faculty positions. If you have any questions about the
graduate program, or would like to complete an application, please visit our
web page at: http://comm.umn.edu/grad/, or contact Dr. Mary Douglas Vavrus,
Director of Graduate Studies at: vavru001 at umn.edu

There are also many opportunities for graduate students to work with the
debate program. If you are interested, please contact David Cram Helwich at:
helwi012 at umn.edu OR cramhelwich at gmail.com. You can also learn more about the
team at our website: debate.umn.edu

THE SCOOP
The U has an excellent graduate program, featuring a very bright crop of
graduate students and an outstanding faculty. People finish their degrees on
time, and move on to good jobs in their chosen disciplines. The department
exhibits a high degree of professionalism and comity, and has an excellent
working and learning environment.

The debate team receives a high level of support from the administration. We
have a great group of students, and are looking for graduate students who
are interested in helping us build a strong program that balances
competitive excellence with a commitment to debate as a powerful pedagogical
tool and platform for social change. The coaching staff makes most decisions
collectively, and you will have the opportunity to put your mark on an
emerging program.

The Twin Cities are a fantastic place to live and work--great music scenes,
internationally renowned theaters and art galleries, a reasonable cost of
living, diverse (and close) outdoor recreation opportunities, and all of the
amenities of a major city. Yes, winter is cold, but you can buy a coat to
wear when you go out to visit the Guthrie, or MIA, or First Ave, or the
Dakota, or the Walker, or one of the many lakes, or the Winter Carnival, or
the groomed cross country ski trails in the city parks.
