Students may take a second three-credit internship toward an upper-division elective.
For more information about the undergraduate program, contact the undergraduate coordinator, Dr. Gary Larson.
The master’s degree program is designed to meet the student’s professional and/or personal objectives. Although an undergraduate degree in journalism, broadcasting, media studies, or communication is not required for admission to the program, a student without a background in these related fields may be required to complete additional coursework at the graduate or undergraduate level in order to satisfy minimum expectations of someone entering a graduate course of study.
