Facilities for Graduate Work

As the state capital, Austin offers excellent opportunities for studying major news sources and primary resources of public data. Professional associations in fields of journalism are cooperative in the planning and conduct of research by University graduate students.

Areas of Study

There are two tracks leading to the Master of Arts in journalism: the research and theory track and the professional track. The research and theory track requires thirty semester hours of coursework, including a thesis. The professional track requires thirty-three semester hours of coursework, including a report. There is also a twelve-hour concentration in public opinion that can be taken within either track.

The Doctor of Philosophy degree is a research degree in mass communication and draws heavily on other disciplines in the College of Communication.
