Learn About Our Programs
The full-time and part-time programs leading to the Master of Science in journalism build upon the student's already strong background in liberal arts, business, law and several other disciplines. The purpose is not simply to train candidates for the first or next job in the field, but also to educate them for significant careers. Applicants who have substantial experience as working journalists and who do not seek to concentrate in professional courses may be considered for the Master of Arts Program, concentrating in politics, business & economy, science, or arts & culture. A Doctor of Philosophy degree in Communications is administered by the school in cooperation with various other university departments and divisions, including Political Science, Sociology, and the Business School.
