Undergraduate Academics

The School of Journalism and Mass Communications offers three graduate degree programs:

The Master of Mass Communication (M.M.C.) is a professional master’s program requiring a minimum of 36 semester hours of course work. The program emphasizes training in media management and is designed more for those who wish to become professionals in some aspect of mass communications. A thesis is not required for this program. Within the M.M.C. program, students may elect the General Program of Study or an area of emphasis in Integrated Communication.

The Master of Arts (M.A.) is a traditional academic program involving a minimum of 30 semester hours of coursework including a six-hour thesis. Students entering usually have significant professional experience.

The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in mass communication prepares students for research and management positions with mass media organizations and such related organizations as advertising and public relations agencies, research and marketing companies, and, especially, for teaching and research careers in higher education. The program requires a minimum of 48 semester hours of coursework including a 12-hour dissertation. An earned master’s degree is required for admission to this doctoral program.
(See Doctoral Manual)

Coursework is available to all students in electronic and print journalism, advertising, public relations, integrated communication and a wide range of other subjects dealing with the process and effects of mass communication.
