    College of Communication Events

    We have decided in accordance with University guidance, and for the safety of our community and visitors, to offer limited on-campus visits. In lieu of in-person group events, we will consider requests for limited one-on-one appointments with a counselor on our Lincoln Park campus; however, we would much rather you join one of our upcoming virtual events or schedule a virtual appointment by phone or Zoom. Your safety and the safety of others is our top priority.

    In-Person and Virtual Events

    In-Person Information Sessions 
    These informal sessions with an Admission representative and sometimes with faculty members are designed to provide prospective students with both a general introduction to DePaul University and specific information about our graduate programs available through the College of Communication.

    Virtual Information Sessions
    Learn more about our graduate Communication programs by participating in an hour-long online information session. The Office of Graduate Admissions offers virtual college-level and program specific remote information sessions, as well as sessions that focus on the admissions process and funding your graduate education.

    One-on-One Counselor Appointments (In-Person or Virtual Options)
    Get answers to your specific questions and explore program options in detail at a time that is convenient for you. Meet individually on campus, by phone, or through Zoom with one of our Admissions directors.

    Academic Spotlight Information Sessions
    Join us for our virtual “Academic Spotlight Sessions” for a 45-minute presentation and Q&A session with an expert from your graduate program of interest. During these sessions you can expect to learn more about your intended major and the opportunities you will have as a graduate student at DePaul University. You’ll also gain a better understanding of the admissions process and see how the College of Communication can help you achieve your career goals.

    Professional Development Lecture Series
    We are pleased to offer through our lecture series a selection of timely continuing education opportunities for Communication professionals who may be considering graduate study with DePaul.

    Graduate Admissions Virtual Drop-Ins
    The Office of Graduate Admission is hosting virtual drop-in hours daily for prospective students to ask general questions about our degree programs or admissions process. These drop-in sessions are intended for short, 20 minute or less questions for individuals who require flexibility in scheduling a meeting to be able to engage at their convenience with our staff. If you need more time, please schedule a one-on-one appointment with one of our admissions representatives.

    University-Wide Graduate Open House
    Each Fall, Winter and Spring quarter, DePaul hosts a university-wide open house for prospective graduate students to meet with faculty and staff from 9 of our graduate colleges and schools. Learn more about the graduate open house.

Currently confirmed events can be found on our calendar here, and are updated as more are added to the schedule.
