The Bachelor of Science in Strategic Communication of Morgan State University combines public relations, advertising and other communication disciplines.  To be successful in the current communication environment requires that students still learn how to identify key stakeholder publics and determine how to reach them. 


But the integration of media platforms and the proliferation of new media technologies has made that a more complex process requiring much more strategically focused approaches.  In addition to learning how to write and develop materials for the traditional media, students will learn how to use social media and other emerging technologies to ensure that all appropriate publics are reached.

Learning outcomes

The following are the learning outcomes expected for students in the Strategic Communication major at Morgan State University:

  • Students will be able to craft compelling, accurate and ethical messages that adhere to styles appropriate to the media for which they are writing and to the stakeholder publics for which those messages are intended.
  • Students will be able to communicate messages in multiple formats, including mobile devices, social media and other new technologies.
  • Students will be able to demonstrate proficiency in research and information gathering techniques, including the wide range of digital sources that are available.
  • Students will be able to demonstrate proficiency in the various techniques of presenting messages including, but not limited to audio/video recording and editing, print media and digital media.
