Are you interested in the new MS in Health Communication?

The MS in Health Communication is a unique program that will prepare students to solve important problems in healthcare by applying theories, concepts and methods from the communication arts and sciences. The program exists to change healthcare for the better. Our curriculum gives students the tools needed to design, produce, analyze and evaluate effective campaigns, policies, protocols, and media products in order improve health and health care outcomes. For students, that means an array of learning opportunities — and a competitive edge in the job market.

The curriculum integrates two streams of research- social influence and human-centered interaction design to promote improvements in health and healthcare. Students learn how to-

  • Improve the quality and safety of healthcare
  • Reduce costs
  • Improve the patient experience

The degree can be completed in a single calendar year and the weekend format, with classes on Saturday, allows students to develop professionally while earning a graduate degree. Students graduate with all the skills needed to be a leader within agencies, companies, and organizations that work to improve heath and healthcare outcomes.

Join us for an in-person or online info session to learn more. Or visit www.healthcomm.northwestern.edu.

A $10,000 Undergraduate Social Action Fellowship

Davis Projects for Peace

A $10,000 Undergraduate Social Action Fellowship

The Davis Projects for Peace program enables undergraduates around the country to design grassroots “projects for peace” that use a summer to address global social issues. The program, which began in 2007, is run through the University of California-Davis and is supported by Kathryn Wasserman Davis, an accomplished internationalist and philanthropist. At Northwestern, the Center for Global Engagement and the Office of Fellowships work together to facilitate the grant process.

2014-15 Application Process

The grant provides $10,000 for a summer project with a nonprofit focused on some dimension of enabling peace in a global world. Many student projects will revolve around direct volunteerism, philanthropy, or development work. The project can be driven by research or a more applied experience, so long as it connects the participant with an established organization.

An Info Session will be held on October 29 at noon at the Office of Fellowships, 1940 Sheridan Rd. Applications are due January 15, 2014. Northwestern will nominate two projects to be reviewed by the Project for Peace staff at UCDavis. Email Patrick Eccles at patrick.eccles@northwestern.edu or Amy Kehoe at amy.kehoe@northwestern.edu, with questions or to set up a meeting to discuss your application.

Learn more about how to apply for the $10,000 grant on the Buffett Center website.
