Five-Year Dual Bachelor's/Master's Degree Program for Communication Majors

Undergraduate communication majors who have completed at least 90 credits in their undergraduate program can be considered for admission into the dual-degree pathway to the master of communication and media (M.C.M.) degree, allowing students to earn a bachelor's degree and master's degree in five years.

Communication majors who are admitted into the dual-degree pathway take two graduate courses in each of the fall and spring semesters of their senior year. Those courses are selected based on student goals and M.C.M. program requirements. These four courses (12 credits) count both as undergraduate major electives and fulfill master's requirements as long as the student earns a grade of B or better. Upon successful completion of coursework in the senior year, dual-degree students will graduate from the undergraduate program and transition into the graduate program as an M.C.M. student. The master's can then be completed in one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study.

Details about the application process and degree requirements are on the school's website.
