The Master of Arts in Communication is a degree program that consists of four curriculum areas:
COMM 5013 Introduction to Graduate Studies in Communication and one research method course from the following:
Along with the above core courses, students must take COMM electives to meet the minimum requirement of 26 Communication credit hours, which must be approved by the director. Elective hours can be a combination of COMM electives, other OU graduate classes, and transfer work. Students may only earn up to 8 hours of credit from graduate courses taken in other OU programs or from transfer hours outside the University of Oklahoma from other universities. Transfer credits must be evaluated by the University and courses from other programs must be approved by the Department prior to enrollment. NOTE: The combined total of transfer hours and graduate credit from other OU programs may not exceed 8 credit hours.
To qualify for a graduate degree, each student must have an overall grade point average of 3.00 ("B") in all graduate work taken at the University of Oklahoma. For those students enrolled in our MA program, the two "C" rule is applied. Any student who receives a second grade of "C" will be suspended from further enrollment until the student's graduate committee reviews and approves the student's appeal.
