The School of Media and Public Affairs in the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences offers a dual bachelor of arts with a major in political communication and master of arts in the field of media and strategic communication degree. The program allows students to take 9 graduate credits as part of their undergraduate program, thereby decreasing the number of credits normally required for the master's degree. All requirements for both degrees must be fulfilled.

Students interested in the dual degree program should confer with the department's graduate adviser early in their junior year. Visit the program website for additional information.
