Student Association

The Communication and Arts Graduate Student Association launched in Fall 2017.  Below are  details regarding the Association and its mission and membership criteria. 

Mission

Formed in Fall 2017, the Communication and Arts Graduate Student Association (CAGSA) works to facilitate a fellowship of students who share solidarity in the common endeavor of earning a graduate degree in the communication- and arts-related disciplines.  To that end, the CAGSA serves all Seton Hall Communication and Arts graduate students with three essential foci:

  • Social – The CAGSA provides opportunities for social interaction with fellow student colleagues.  This is accomplished through various Center-wide initiatives, as well as through informal CAGSA events.
  • Academic  – The CAGSA exposes its members to student and faculty experiences so that students in each programmatic phase gains an appreciation and understanding of scholarly success in the broader academic field.
  • Networking – In tandem with the social and academic foci, the CAGSA provides opportunities for members to gain a broader understanding of career opportunities (both inside academic and in other professional settings) within the discipline.  Additionally, and to the extent feasible, the CAGSA seeks ways to connect members with scholarly and professional contacts in the field.

Membership

Membership in the Communication and Arts Graduate Student Association (CAGSA) is open to all graduate students in the existing Strategic Communication, Public Relations, and Museum Professions programs within the Center for Graduate Studies.  As future programs within the Center are developed, membership will be available to students in those programs as well.

Members of the CAGSA are expected to be in good academic standing to participate.
