Master of Arts
The master of arts program in journalism and mass communication is designed to provide intellectual growth and advanced training for persons already engaged in mass media or public information work. Students wishing to specialize in a particular area, such as marketing communications or international business journalism, sociological or political communication, are encouraged to design a sequence of elective courses that best meets their interests.
In addition to the general requirements established by the university, the applicant must demonstrate a proficiency in English at an advanced level and obtain an acceptable score on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Applicants are admitted in the fall semester.
Students who have neither an undergraduate degree in journalism nor at least two years of significant mass media or research experience might be asked to overcome deficiencies through prescribed readings and/or a program of undergraduate courses completed with grades of B or higher.
Students entering this program may be required to take a diagnostic test to determine whether they need to take undergraduate prerequisites in order to eliminate academic deficiencies.
