Admissions Requirements

The M.A. in Technology and Communication is intended for mid-career professionals in journalism or another communication-related field seeking an immersion in digital media theory and applications.

Admission to the MATC is competitive. No more than 20 applicants are admitted each year for fall entry.

Admission to the program is based on an analysis of each applicant’s academic record, GRE scores, years of relevant professional experience, reasons for pursuing the degree and references. The professional experience requirement of three years cannot be mitigated by any other factors and stands as a hard requirement. See Tips for Applying for more information.

  • Three years of professional mass communication experience.
  • Undergraduate GPA of 3.0.
  • GRE verbal and quantitative scores in the 50th percentile with preference will be given to applicants with GRE verbal and quantitative scores in the 55th percentile or higher.
