Degree Requirements

- Plan I, the Two-Year Research Program -

The two-year master's degree program is intended for students seeking a strong research emphasis in their study of advertising and public relations. The Plan I program focuses on important problems and questions, gathering evidence, and setting standards for inference. The program specifically prepares students in the areas of (a) mastering the body of scholarly knowledge of advertising and public relations, and (b) contributing to the advancement of knowledge in these fields through basic and applied research. Students may decide to continue their studies, pursuing doctorates in advertising or public relations. Students in the Plan I program specialize in either advertising or public relations, learn the concepts and methods involved in productive scholarship, and collaborate with faculty members in conducting research.

Plan I requirements. Plan I is normally a two-year program and requires (a) a minimum of 30 hours of approved graduate courses, (b) demonstration of proficiency in research skills, (c) passing of a comprehensive written examination, and (d) completion and successful defense of a master's thesis. Students admitted to the program with little or no previous coursework in advertising or public relations may be required to take one or more undergraduate courses in the department to supplement their graduate studies.

Plan II, the One-Year Professional Program

The professional program is an intensive, professionally oriented, one-year program that combines advertising and public relations. Recognizing the increasingly close links between the advertising and public relations professions, the Plan II program provides advanced preparation in both disciplines. The program provides intensive training to meet specific objectives. Graduates will be prepared to:

- develop a thorough understanding of the institutions and processes involved in advertising and public relations, through a combined program of study

- use research both to generate communication strategies and to evaluate the success of communication programs

- write idea-driven persuasive communication

- plan, implement, and evaluate media plans for advertising and public relations programs and campaigns

The Plan II program is for recent college graduates who see the advantages of having advanced skills in advertising and public relations. The students will recognize that preparation in the liberal arts, business administration, or communication has provided them with important knowledge but has not sufficiently prepared them in the communication concepts and skills needed to be a leader.

Speaking and writing skills are emphasized in all courses, with frequent papers and presentations. One course each semester emphasizes writing skills involved in the advertising and public relations professions.

Plan II requirements. The one-year Plan II program requires (a) completion of a specific 33-hour program of graduate courses, (b) demonstration of proficiency in research skills, (c) passing of a comprehensive written examination, and (d) completion of a master's project in the course APR 598 Communication Workshop. Students admitted to the program will receive a list of critical readings and will be expected to become familiar with these materials before beginning the program. The program starts with a series of orientation sessions aimed at evaluating each student's grasp of the critical readings and ability to proceed with the program without further background study.

Columbia University’s new Master of Science in Applied Analytics empowers you to assess the application of an organization’s data and analytics. You will learn how to define and frame analytical problems, how to decide which data are collected and what analyses should be performed, and how to communicate and work with analysts on solutions that are technically sound as well as valuable to the organization. Available part-time and full-time, the program is anchored by three week-long courses on Columbia’s campus in New York City that feature networking, group exercises, and guest lecturers. Between these courses, you will complete additional coursework on campus or online through a networked learning platform. For your final capstone project, you will apply your knowledge to develop a real-world analytics project sponsored by a leading organization.

Program Structure

The program consists of required courses in two core areas. The Leadership, Management, and Communication Core develops an enterprise-wide perspective on data and the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to inspire, create, and foster an analytical culture within an organization. The Applied Analytics Core develops a broad understanding of the frameworks for the use of data to inform real-life business problems from data collection to application in decision-making. This core introduces you to the methods and range of tools and systems that organizations use to conceptualize, collect, manage, and analyze data to produce information to make it actionable across their enterprise.
For your elective study, you will align the foundational skills you've developed in the two core areas with three courses you choose that are pertinent to your academic and professional goals. Elective courses in a wide range of subjects, including business, finance, marketing, information visualization, collaboration, communication, and negotiation, let you obtain in-depth knowledge in a particular industry or functional area within an organization.
Completing your Integrated Capstone Project, you will apply what you have learned in the two core components to a real-world analytics project sponsored by a leading organization.
Students requiring an F1 visa must enroll full-time (12 credits) and study on campus. Students on an F1 visa are permitted to complete no more than one online class each semester. Students not on an F1 visa have the flexibility to enroll in courses online or on-campus. For these students, if desired, 68% of the coursework can be completed online. The program offers one core course each semester in a block week format at a Columbia University location in New York City which reduces the amount of time on campus for students located outside the New York metropolitan area.

Program overview

The ideas of applied mathematics pervade several applications in a variety of businesses and industries as well as government. Sophisticated mathematical tools are increasingly used to develop new models, modify existing ones, and analyze system performance. This includes applications of mathematics to problems in management science, biology, portfolio planning, facilities planning, control of dynamic systems, and design of composite materials. The goal is to find computable solutions to real-world problems arising from these types of situations.

The master of science degree in applied and computational mathematics provides students with the capability to apply mathematical models and methods to study various problems that arise in industry and business, with an emphasis on developing computable solutions that can be implemented. The program offers options in discrete mathematics, dynamical systems, and scientific computing. Students complete a thesis, which includes the presentation of original ideas and solutions to a specific mathematical problem. The proposal for the thesis work and the results must be presented and defended before the advisory committee.

Curriculum

Several options available for course sequence:
-Discrete mathematics option
-Dynamical systems option
-Scientific computing option
