Department of Communications at John Cabot University in Italy

Fast Track to Graduate Media Studies at the New School

The New School in New York City, in collaboration with John Cabot University, is offering a great opportunity for students who want to pursue a Graduate Certificate in Media Management or a full Master of Arts in Media Studies or a Master of Science in Media Management and save time and money in the process.

Students will be able to obtain graduate credits while they are doing their BA at John Cabot University and apply those credits to a Graduate Certificate in Media Management at The School of Media Studies of The New School. They will also be able to apply the graduate credits they have already earned to the pursuit of a full MA in Media Studies or an MS in Media Management at The New School. 

For deadlines and further information, please contact the Communications Department Chair.

Here is how it works:

Certificate in Media Management

While in the BA program at John Cabot University, students will apply to the Certificate in Media Management at The New School. Once accepted, they will take two graduate courses offered by JCU (6 credits). Those six credits will count toward the JCU's BA and they will also be transferred to TNS Certificate. Students can take two courses online. After completing the required courses (two at JCU and two at TNS), students will be awarded a Certificate in Media Management.

Master in Media Studies or Media Management

After completing their BA at John Cabot University and the Graduate Certificate at the New School, students can elect to continue their graduate studies and apply to enroll to earn a full MA in Media Studies or an MS in Media Management at The New School. Having obtained already 12 credits, they will need to complete an additional 27 credits (nine courses) for Media Studies and 24 credits (eight courses) for Media Management in order to graduate.

Additional Information

  • In order to apply to the Fast Track to the Graduate Certificate in Media Management, students at JCU must have a minimum of 60 credits and a 3.0 GPA
  • Eligible graduate courses at JCU will be offered primarily by the Communication Department. The eligibility of graduate courses in other departments will have to be decided on a case by case basis and discussed with an adviser.
