This special program enables a small number of qualified candidates to receive two master's degrees, one from Columbia's Graduate School of Journalism (M.S.) and the other from the Department of Religion (M.A.), in two years of study.
Candidates must apply simultaneously for both the Journalism School and the Religion Department by expressing their intention to pursue the dual program. Admitted students complete the Journalism program (One year degree program) in their first year. They must successfully complete J6002y, section 8 (Covering Religion), whose 6 credits are to be applied for their completion of the M.A. in Religion in their second year. If section 8 is oversubscribed or is not offered in a particular year, the faculty of Journalism and Religion will designate an alternate section under J6002 for students to fulfill their requirements.
