Communication MA exceeds the norm for research productivity
October 1st, 2013
Faculty in the communication department publish more research than the average Ph.D granting department, according to a recent newsletter by the Communication Institute for Online Scholarship (CIOS).
CIOS measures productivity using ComAbstracts database, which contains more than 70,000 articles from 140 mainline communication journals. Productivity is determined by faculty size and degree offerings, and it is based on how many articles faculty in a communication department publish. Wake Forest was among a group of universities whose communication master’s programs have accumulated more research than the average Ph.D. program.
