Master of Science in Journalism
About the MSJ Program
The WVU Reed College of Media’s Master of Science in Journalism (MSJ) program provides students with an advanced understanding of media disciplines, preparing them for careers in the industry or academia.
The 30-hour MSJ program offers students the choice of two tracks: the teaching-research track for those who wish to go pursue a doctoral degree and the professional track for those seeking professional opportunities in mass communications.
MSJ students have the opportunity to work with faculty on research projects and to participate in and help lead web-based, immersion journalism projects, such as “West Virginia Uncovered: Multimedia Journalism from the Mountains,” “Starting Over: Loss and Renewal in Katrina’s Aftermath” and “Taking Part: The Artists with Disabilities Project.”
