Current Graduate Students

The master’s degree in journalism is a blend of academic and professional content. While some of the graduates have gone on to academic careers, more graduates have moved up in their jobs at media organizations.

You will have eight years to complete your degree. Work closely with your advisor to develop your personal plan at the very beginning.

You will need these resources as you progress through your program:

Syllabi for courses.  

Tuition estimator

Academic calendars.   

Forms for graduate students.  

Graduate Catalog.  

Journalism Section in Graduate Catalog.  

APA Stylebook.  Most of your professors will specify that papers be submitted using American Psychological Association (APA) style. You will buy the style book in the class of Journalism Research (JOUR 7075). 

Wiggio.  Graduate students use wiggio as a place to meet, find announcements, links and files.  Be sure to check there for additional support.  And, don’t hesitate to search for what you need on your own.
