Dual Masters Programs

Dual Master's Programs

Dual degree programs are structured so that students can earn two master's degrees simultaneously in approximately three academic years. The Moody College of Communication  offers dual M.A. programs which may include a specialization in Advertising, Communication Studies, Journalism and Media, and Radio-Television-Film. 

A student interested in any joint degree program can learn more from the Graduate School. All dual degree applicants will be reviewed independently by both departments and must meet the admissions requirements for both. Applicants must be accepted into both departments in order to be considered a dual degree student.
