UHart's 60+ graduate programs have been designed with students in mind as they embark on this journey and in some cases while also maintaining successful careers. They learn alongside peers with common goals in an inclusive and diverse community and are encouraged to think critically and ethically to prepare them for the next level of personal and professional growth. 

Our diverse and interdisciplinary programs feature an active collaboration with faculty researchers and practitioners whose real-world experience prepares students for success. In addition, each student has access to a network of over 85,000 alumni who are an excellent resource for professional connection and support.

As is critical in today’s competitive society, significant learning opportunities take place outside of the classroom through collaborations and networking opportunities with some of the region’s top business, nonprofit, public sector, and arts communities. Some notable partners include AETNA, Cigna, Goodspeed Opera House, Hartford Public Schools, Hartford Stage, Pratt and Whitney, St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center, Stanley Black and Decker, and United Technologies.

Bryson Owens

Communication, '18, M'20

Bryson Owens is working remotely as an associate video producer for Newsweek providing video content for its social media channels and website including the presidential and vice-presidential debates, the Amy Coney Barrett supreme court confirmation hearings, as well as election night coverage.

Owens says he became interested in politics at a very young age, and as an undergraduate and graduate student, he took multiple politics and government courses that directly and indirectly intertwined with media communications. He says his final graduate project, College During COVID, co-produced with Bianca Ross ’18, M’20, was cited as the reason his resume stood out from the others.

“What triggered my thirst to pursue all facets in the communication and media industry was taking courses such as: Gender/Sex in Pop Culture, Intro to Television Production, Political Advertising and Women in the Media, and Media Process and Effects. Communication Professors Karen Schermerhorn, Jack Banks, Sundeep Muppidi, and Kristin Comeforo really pushed me to think critically, be unbiased in my analysis, and see the world and how the media has the power to change it.”
