By Darin Watkins, Edward R. Murrow College of Communication

PULLMAN, Wash. – The online master’s degree in strategic communication at Washington State University has been ranked 22nd in the country by Top Management Degrees based on tuition cost, accreditation, graduate pay, graduation rates and more.

This follows last year’s award to the degree for “Best Online Master’s in Communication and Public Relations” from Nonprofit Colleges Online.

“We are pleased with the success and growth of the online program,” said Rebecca Cooney, clinical assistant professor with the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication. “We celebrate the accomplishments of our 40-plus graduates and look forward to continuing the delivery of valuable teaching and learning experiences to our faculty and students.”

In its fourth year, the program ranks among the most affordable online degrees (No. 4 of the top 50 in Top Management Degrees), with graduates earning an average of $63,592.

Offering hands-on training from experts in new and traditional media, the degree is designed for those who want to excel in advertising, public relations, corporate communication and communication management. The program has 136 students, primarily from the U.S. but with several from around the world.
