Final Steps to Graduate
Completing your degree at the School of Journalism and Mass Communications
Completing your degree at the School of Journalism and Mass Communications – Digital Content Strategy.
The final step to complete your Master of Science in Journalism degree is to fill out and submit forms. As a student enrolled in Journalism 869, you are completing an individual project (capstone). You must submit the following forms and email to Jammie Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- KU J-School Professional Master’s Project Tracking Form (pdf): Fill out this form early in the semester you plan to finish your project, no later than June 30. (I have a different form for DCS, but am waiting to find out who the 3rd committee member will be.)
- Graduate Program Graduation Survey: Due the last day of classes.
Final General Exam and Defense
Each student must pass a final general examination before graduating. This examination is part of the Capstone project.
