The SJMC offers three graduate degree options:
- a PhD in Mass Communications

Each program emphasizes individualized inquiry in a lively intellectual environment where students and faculty work together as a community of learners.
The PhD in Mass Communications and the Master’s in Journalism and Mass Communication programs start in the fall semester. Deadline to apply is January 10 for the following fall. Students seeking financial assistance should apply by that date.
Applications for the Online Master's Degree in Strategic Communication program are accepted for spring, summer, and fall semesters.
The School of Journalism & Mass Communication Graduate Studies Handbook is undergoing revisions. Current and prospective students are encouraged to contact the Director of Graduate Studies for any additional questions about the program.
