Online Master of Arts in Journalism, New Media Studies emphasis launches
The “master’s initiative” requirement of the program is a three-semester project that produces a non-traditional thesis. Six hours of branch electives help students tailor the program to meet their individual needs and interests.
“We are excited to begin offering this new online master’s degree that will allow students the flexibility and innovative coursework to meet the demands of the 21st century mass media,” said Dr. Robert Rabe, graduate coordinator for the school of Journalism and Mass Communications. “Students will be able to tailor an individualized sequence of courses and experiences that prepare them for exactly the kinds of careers they hope to pursue.”
In addition to the new program, the School of Journalism and Mass Communications offers its traditional Master of Arts in Journalism, an M.A.J. with a health care emphasis and three free-standing 15-hour certificate programs in Media Management, Integrated Strategic Communications and Digital Communications.
For more information about the programs, and for admission requirements, contact Rabe by phone at 304-696-2360, or visit the school’s website, www.marshall.edu/sojmc.
