CMM certificate

Beginning in the summer of 2013, Fitchburg State University in association with the CMM Institute, will offer a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in Interdisciplinary Studies: Coordinated Management of Meaning through a combination of distance learning and real-time workshops and seminars. This is a 36 credit program for post-master’s level students. Students will complete 10 courses for a total of 30 credits and then complete a 6 credit thesis that would demonstrate the ability to apply CMM to real-world challenges. The faculty selected for this program are among the leading researchers in the field of CMM research and application. This certificate will be delivered through a combination of distance/online learning (synchronous and asynchronous) and on-campus workshops and seminars.

Career Opportunities
The Coordinated Management of Meaning CAGS program is a post-master’s academic certificate designed for candidates seeking to enhance their professional knowledge and skills. Graduates of this program may elect to go onto existing doctoral level programs that would support CMM as a research methodology.

“CMM has a rich past and has become one of the most important social science theories. More than an interpretive theory, it serves as a practical theory with applicability in many arenas. Students of this program will develop the capacity to help individuals and organizations understand and enhance their communication and action in ways that allow people to form better relationships and ultimately offer solutions to a number of human issues.”
–Dr. John Chetro-Szivos, Graduate Program Chair
