College of Information and Communications

Journalism and Mass Communication

Joint Master of Mass Communication and Law

Interested in media law? We offer a dual degree combining a Master of Mass Communication with a law degree.

Degree Requirements

Students apply to both programs and receive up to nine hours of law school credit for work completed toward the mass communications degree. Most students complete this in four years, starting their program at the law school and splitting time in both schools during the remaining years.

Students who graduate with these degrees become first amendment law specialists, working for media companies or themselves.

The academic bulletin has more information about this degree program.
