Students seeking admission to the Master's in Journalism program must submit the following :
- Completed application and application fee
- Official undergraduate transcript in which the student completed a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university and achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4-point scale
- Statement of purpose (750 words) explaining why the student is seeking admission to the program
- Writing sample or project that demonstrates the applicant’s journalistic ability
- Two letters of recommendation
The Journalism admission committee has a rolling admission policy, meaning the committee will consider completed applications throughout the year. For students who completed their undergraduate education outside the United States and who are not native speakers of English, a TOEFL score of 590 (paper-based); 243 (computer-based) or 96 (internet-based — with all sections scores of 22 or higher) is also required along with an oral interview with two members of the program’s faculty.
