Studies of Global Media - M.A. Degree Requirements
About the Program
This program is offered by the School of Journalism. All of the courses for this degree may be taken within the program. We have partnerships with the Human Rights Practice Program, the Information School, and the International Security Studies program for students to take select electives in those programs.
The flexible curriculum allows students to enter the program in the fall, summer, or spring semester, during the first or second sessions. The courses complement one another yet require no prerequisites. The M.A. could be earned in one year yet students generally take 18 months to two years to complete the work. Part-time students are welcome.
You must complete a minimum of 31 units to earn a master’s degree in Studies of Global Media (GLO). This includes four required courses, which are three credits each, and a one-credit capstone. Of the remaining credits to complete the degree, 18 are elective credits. Three of those electives (nine credits) must be in the Studies of Global Media program.
All course work will be based on graduate-level work. Credits earned in the 500-level section of a co-convened course (400/500) will be accepted toward graduate degree.
GLO classes are online, but students on the main campus can take in-person JOUR courses as electives and other courses.
