My employer will pay for 75% of my tuition in a graduate program. Would a Master's Degree in Communication Studies be a worthy option?
I have very few specific career goals for myself. That said, the University I work at will pay for 75% of the tuition on any courses that I take. It seems foolish for me not to take advantage of that offer while I still work here.
I am drawn to the MA in Communication Studies because I would eventually like to move into a position that involves more writing and/or public speaking than I currently do. I don't know if this would be pr, marketing, or a specific communications department, but it seems like this degree may help get me there.
Additionally, I would ideally like to find some success as a writer of my own shit (maybe not on a professional level, but at least on a personal level), so I'm hoping this degree would help me improve my own writing and editing skills at the very least.
I have seen this question
. Most of the answers assumed that the OP wanted to go into journalism. I have no intentions of doing that, and if I did, that is not the route I would go.
SO, with all of my vague half-formed thoughts, has your MA in Communication Studies helped you at all? In what ways? In what fields?
