Special Focus Areas
At Quinnipiac, we encourage students to pursue their unique areas of interest within our undergraduate and graduate programs.
In the School of Communications, some students in our journalism and public relations programs focus on sports studies. Quinnipiac offers a graduate program in sports journalism as well as specialized courses and training that prepare students for professional careers in sports. Sports journalists cover events from the best seats in the house, sports production crews capture all of the action for the fans at home, and sports media relations professionals work to promote their organizations and athletes.
The school also offers graduate opportunities in social media. The popularity and ubiquity of social media has created the need for specialists who can understand and elevate the social media presence of any organization. Businesses, nonprofits, government agencies and other organizations are seeking qualified practitioners to help develop strategies and introduce social media into public and internal operations.
Graduate students enrolled in our interactive media or public relations programs can choose a comprehensive social media track for their degree. Social media certificates are also available to those not pursuing a master's degree.
