Students presenting recent work

Baylor graduate students in the Department of Journalism, Public Relations and New Media presented papers at the 2013 AEJMC Midwinter Conference, held at the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Oklahoma.

The AEJMC Midwinter Conference is an annual forum for the presentation of research and debate in areas relevant to the 11 AEJMC groups (divisions, interest groups and commissions) sponsoring the event. The conference provides a platform for presentations and extended discussions in a relaxed setting.

Master's Degrees

Baylor's Department of Journalism, Public Relations and New Media offers both a Master of Arts and a Master of International Journalism. Both degrees combine relevant, stimulating courses with practical training to further prepare students for work in news-editorial, PR, photojournalism, new media, foreign correspondence, research, and/or teaching.

Master of Arts

The M.A. degree serves those students who want to work in journalism, public relations and/or new media. Graduates may also continue work toward a doctoral degree.

The M.A. is a research-focused degree requiring 36 hours, including three hours for a thesis or major project. A major project or thesis proposal must be approved before students begin work.

Studentswork with the graduate director to design a rigorous program that meets their goals.

Master of International Journalism

The M.I.J is an interdisciplinary degree that prepares graduates for careers in foreign correspondence and/or in international mass media. The M.I.J. requires 30 semester hours of course work and a six-hour internship abroad.

Students must complete an examination before starting the international internship and also demonstrate proficiency in a language other than their native one. Language instruction is available at Baylor. Most students study their chosen language further before demonstrating proficiency.

M.I.J.students have completed internships in Europe, South America, Canada, Asia and Africa with news, public relations, government and faith-based organizations.
