Program Description

MA in Communication, Media & Theatre

Northeastern Illinois University

The Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Communication, Media and Theatre provides an in-depth study of the principles and practices of communication, media, and theatre. The program is designed for students interested in advanced corporate positions, those preparing for positions in higher education or further graduate study, and teachers at the elementary or secondary level. The CMT Graduate Program only admits students for the fall semester; we do not admit in the spring semester.

Minimum Requirements for Admission to the Program

Students must fulfill the requirements for admission to the College of Graduate Studies and Research before admission into the CMT graduate program can be considered. Applicants are required to have completed 15 undergraduate credit hours (a minimum of 9 credit hours at the advanced [300 or above] undergraduate level) in Communication, Media or Theatre at an accredited institution of higher education with a B average. Applicants will also be asked to submit a writing sample. Students must satisfy these requirements prior to being admitted into the program. All final admission decisions rest with the CMT faculty.

Students at large will only be authorized to enroll in graduate-level courses with approval of the graduate advisor and the course instructor.

Requirements for the Degree

30 credit hours are required in consultation with the graduate advisor. A maximum of six hours in cognate areas may be included in the program with the approval of the graduate faculty committee of the Department of Communication, Media, and Theatre.
