Applications are reviewed by the Information and Media (I&M) Ph.D. Executive Committee and the three participating units - the Department of Advertising + Public Relations, the School of Journalism and the Department of Media and Information.
Like other MSU Ph.D. programs, this is a competitive review, with applicants ranked among all that apply for a given year. Admission is for the fall semester only. The review of applications begins December 5, so early applications are encouraged. The deadline for applicants who wish to be considered for funding is December 1 of each year. Late applications are considered on a case-by-case basis after that date.
Next application deadline: December 1
for Fall 2021 admission
