Organized in 1871 under provisions of the Morrill Act as both the State University and the Land-Grant College of Arkansas, the University of Arkansas is now comprised of nine colleges and schools. The Graduate School, which was established in 1927, has offered a Master of Arts degree in Communication, or its precursor Speech, since 1954. The graduate program is located in the Department of Communication, at 417 Kimpel Hall, on the University’s flagship campus at Fayetteville.
Nestled in the Ozark Mountains, Fayetteville is a cultural crossroads where students find opportunity, excitement, and diversity. The seat of government for Washington County, Fayetteville has a population of nearly 70,000 people, with at least 350,000 people in the Northwest Arkansas metropolitan area. This progressive city attracts patrons of the arts, the sciences, and the professions, which makes Fayetteville an excellent choice for graduate study.
While attending the University of Arkansas, you may find the opportunity to have coffee with a nationally recognized researcher in laser physics or lunch with a prize-winning poet. You can enjoy a weekend backpacking through a wilderness area, canoeing the Buffalo National River, sailing on Beaver Lake, or enjoying an open market of arts, crafts, and farm-fresh produce around the town square.
