The Dual Degree Program is structured so that students can earn two master's degrees simultaneously in approximately three years. The College of Communication offers dual degree M.A. programs which may include a specialization in Advertising, Communication Sciences & Disorders, Journalism, Radio-Television-Film, or Communication Studies. Degrees are awarded when the required course work in both areas is completed. The student must apply to and be accepted by both programs to be eligible for the Dual Degree Program.
