Full time, the degree can be finished in one year and four months (across four terms, including the summer session); parttime, all course work can be finished in two to three years. With permission from a School of Communication committee, a maximum of 4 graduate units may be transferred from another accredited institution.

Course Requirements

Thirty-two units in approved graduate-level course work are required.

Students will take a required 4-unit research methods course in their first semester. In their second semester, students will take a required 4-unit core conceptual foundation course. During their course of study, students take 4 units from a list of approved theory-practice integration courses.

A maximum of two courses may be taken in the first semester. In the second and subsequent semesters, with approval from the director of the Master of Communication Management program, students may take up to three courses.

Among the remaining courses, at least 12 units must be from Communication Management elective areas of focus. Up to 8 may be taken at USC outside the Communication Management program; these courses must be approved by the director of the Master of Communication Management program, and may be selected from a variety of disciplines, depending upon academic and career interests.

Any given course may be taken at most three times, after which the student is no longer eligible to take the course.
