Our master's students have different backgrounds and different reasons for pursuing a master's degree: Some students are returning professionals who want to update their skills, while others have a BA in another area and want a new career in journalism. Some students come straight from a journalism undergrad degree and want to pursue a specialization while others want to kick-start a career in academia and pursue a Ph.D.
Our program has a track for professional development and a track for academic and research training. It can accommodate students wanting to learn fundamental skills in journalism, the latest communication technologies, a specialization, applied or academic research methods or better understand the relationship between society and media.
Our students graduate with a great project to show to prospective employers, or an internship that might open doors to a new job or a thesis to gain experience in research and theory in a topic that inspires them.
Special concentration areas include health, environment and science; international and journalism education.
