The Hank Greenspun School of Journalism and Media Studies offers the Master of Arts degree. The course of study is designed to emphasize research and theoretical exploration in various areas of journalism, and the form and content of the media. The courses are designed to help students acquire the tools to conduct graduate-level research and produce scholarship. The curriculum also caters to those with a professional orientation thus allowing students to investigate areas such as advertising, media management, public relations, television and film, the Internet and emerging media forms and their effects at the social and individual levels. The program aims to develop a deep understanding of the media to make students better consumers of the media, developers of mediated messages, critics of mediated subject matter, and experts on journalistic and mass mediated problems and issues.

All students are required to take four introductory courses; Survey of Journalism and Media Studies, Qualitative Research Methods, Quantitative Research Methods, and Journalism and Media Theory (JMS 712, JMS 711, JMS 710, and JMS 730). Because each student’s goals are unique, the program is flexible in developing individual program curricula. The objective is to balance the discipline’s varied traditions in theory, history, and research with attention paid especially to the changing media landscape of the twentyfirst century.
