Course content

The dynamic Mass Communication master’s program has a slogan: A time to reflect, a time to advance. Whether the goal is to become a professor, conduct research, or enhance a media career, graduate studies can be tailored to suit each student’s needs. Master’s candidates can choose either a thesis or a professional project track whether for a traditional approach to scholarship or for working professionals seeking to further their careers. Within the thesis track, MTSU is one of the few universities that offers either a qualitative or quantitative focus. Members of the nationally and internationally recognized faculty have a wide range of professional and academic experience. Offerings include specializations in journalism, management, public relations, advertising, health communication, international communication, traditional/new media, and media law. Students are encouraged to think critically and develop creatively with support from peers, guidance from faculty, and resources for research and production. The relatively small size of graduate classes allows for individualized attention to students. Assistantships are available, as well as awards, fellowships, and other financial support.

The College of Media and Entertainment offers the Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Mass Communication, designed for students seeking an advanced degree in mass media theory and methods of research or for those wishing to advance in their professional field. The degree is appropriate for students who wish to become researchers or pursue a doctoral degree or for media professionals already in the field who seek a broader understanding of the field of mass communication and to develop research and management skills for decision-making in media-related businesses.
