Future Graduate Students

The master's in journalism at The University of Memphis prepares students for leadership positions in news, advertising and public relations, or to go on to receive their doctoral degrees. Students can tailor their programs depending on their goals. Please download our eHandbook for detailed information.

The program is built around four core courses; law, theories, research, and administration. Students add journalism electives, including courses outside journalism, to complete their degree. Master's students also choose from among a thesis, project, or coursework-only options.

Our master's students are diverse and usually include professionals with significant professional experience along with 21-year-old recent undergraduates from many parts of the U.S. It is not unusual to have English-speaking students from other parts of the world in their on-campus or online classes.
