The Hank Greenspun School of Journalism and Media Studies offers the master of arts degree, a course of study designed to emphasize methodological and theoretical exploration. JMS courses help students acquire tools for conducting graduate-level research and for producing scholarship. The curriculum allows students to investigate areas such as advertising, emerging media, film, the internet, media management, print, public relations, and television, and their effects at social and individual levels. The program aims to develop a deep understanding of the media and to make students experts on journalistic and mass-mediated problems and issues, as well to make them better consumers of media messages, developers of content, and critics of mediated subject matter. Because each student’s goals are unique, the program is flexible in developing individual program curricula, offering both traditional and non-traditional thesis options. The objective is to balance the discipline’s varied traditions in theory, history, and research with attention paid to emerging media contexts.
