The Master of Science in Media Solutions and Innovation – Publishing Path degree is earned through the successful completion of 10 three-credit courses, totaling 30 credit hours required for graduation.

Students complete the program in a NewStart cohort, taking classes sequentially. Students will first complete an introductory course, followed by eight core courses taken in thematically-paired blocks of two. After completing their core courses, students will take the capstone course, which includes a hands-on research immersion into a news organization. The program’s capstone course synthesizes all students have learned into one comprehensive project — researching and creating a business plan and audience development strategy for a real-world media publication.
