Student Life

We empower each student from the moment they set foot on campus to thrive at Northwestern with the ample amount of resources the university has to offer.

There is no typical health communication student or traditional career path that students follow.  Our students and alumni share a common goal: to design and promote improvements in healthcare and health communication that embrace their varied backgrounds and career aspirations.

As member of the MSHC community, our students gain access to a variety of student life resources which can be found more in detail here.

Whether a student is just beginning their career in the field or joining us with more experience, the MS in Health Communication program works to provide academic, social, and career development support to each member of our community. Through admittance to our program, students gain access to an ever-growing group of like-minded individuals, each striving to improve our system of healthcare in unique ways.
