Doctorate in Journalism and Mass Communication

The School’s PhD program offers innovative and rigorous education in research skills leading to original research and the creation of knowledge.  The program of study leads to the student’s dissertation proposal and dissertation.  PhD students work closely with the School’s publishing faculty members, creating original research examining real-world issues.  Students take up to 56 hours, including a core of theory and research methods courses; 12 hours in a concentration in an academic unit outside of the J-School; a comprehensive exam, and then complete an acceptable dissertation.
