Masters of Communication alum Tiffany McClary '20 is a Communications, Marketing & Outreach Director for a NJ state agency and has worked in the Communications field for over 15 years.

The M.A. in Communication program has prepared me to be an effective communication professional. A large part of the work that I do is relationship building and bridging connections between non-profit, government and business organizations, both statewide and nationally. I have learned first-hand the vital role communication plays in collaboration and have found that the success of these programs depends on shared resources and collective support. I have amassed a wealth of invaluable experience through my Monmouth University education which I am able to translate into this important work.
