PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

Our Master of Media in Journalism & Communication (MMJC) degree will allow you to move seamlessly between journalism, communications and other media careers. The MMJC is different from other programs:

  • a one-year program, two terms on-campus plus one term offsite, completing an internship and capstone project
  • an opportunity to do an internship with media organizations you would otherwise not have access to
  • a chance to do a capstone project that could be the crown jewel in your portfolio
  • a master’s degree that will open more doors for your career than a diploma, certificate or undergraduate degree
  • a chance to learn the skills necessary for media, journalism and communications
    • gain the flexibility to move between career paths
    • learn to do ALL kinds of jobs more effectively
  • understand the underlying principles of media production; the MMJC is not just a ‘how to’ program
  • the opportunity to work with non-profits, NGOs, and other civil society groups during your internship and in coursework
  • acquire the agility to find new ways of telling stories as they emerge in a rapidly changing landscape
