The Communication - Journalism Track program from Stanford University is rigorous, with students learning how to combine the best of data journalism and storytelling skills. It is small by design: The average journalism MA cohort consists of about 15 students. It is a springboard to a career: Recent graduates are working at many of the world’s most influential media and technology companies.
The minimum number of units for a master’s degree in Communication-Journalism Track is 45 unduplicated units beyond the 180 units required for the bachelor’s degree. The maximum number of units per quarter taken at graduate level is 18, with any additional units taken within the same quarter charged at a per unit rate.
Students in the Coterminal Master’s Program in Communication may transfer certain courses between their undergraduate and graduate careers by submitting a Coterminal Course Approval Form to the Registrar’s Office. Courses that were taken since, and including, Autumn quarter of sophomore year are eligible for transfer. Both undergraduate and graduate departments must approve any such transfer in courses. These courses may only count toward one career or the other.
