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.
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.
The following faculty members served on the Graduate Studies Committee in the spring semester 2000-2001.
Entering students must hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution. An applicant with fewer than twelve semester hours of upper-division coursework in journalism or other areas related to mass communications may be required to complete additional undergraduate coursework, to be determined after consideration of the applicant's college transcript and professional experience.
In addition to the general University requirements for the master's degree, Journalism 380, Journalism 384, at least one topic of Journalism 381, and one other graduate seminar in journalism are required.
