Why the Communication Instruction Certificate

This certificate was created for individuals wanting to earn 18 graduate-level hours for the purpose of teaching 1000-level and 2000-level courses in the Communication discipline, with the possibility of continuing an MA at a later date. The required courses for the certificate are specific for teaching courses routinely offered in Tennessee colleges and universities to Communication students.

The potential student works at a college or university and has an interest in teaching communication, but lacks an MA or MS in the discipline. The students can complete the certificate requirements and would be prepared to teach Public Speaking, Introduction to Media/Communication, Interpersonal Communication, and Organizational Communication.

All graduate faculty teaching the certificate classes have degrees in Communication and are experts in their areas of interest.

No other universities or colleges are offering a similar program in the state.
