Master of Science in Journalism Applicants

Interviews are strongly encouraged for applicants to Medill's Master of Science in Journalism (MSJ) program. You can schedule an interview at any time during the application process. We encourage you to schedule your interview prior to submitting your application or no later than two weeks afterwards. If you can't travel to Evanston for an interview, you can sign up for one via Skype. Medill representatives also meet and interview prospective graduate students in many cities throughout the year. Please check this page regularly to see if we have posted new appointments in a city near you. If none of the listed interview times are convenient for you or if no interview slots are currently posted, contact Melissa Sersland or Julie Collins to schedule one.


Master of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications Applicants

  • For applicants to the Full-time IMC program, admissions interviews will be conducted by invitation only after we have received your application. An invitation to interview means that your application has advanced in the process, but does not imply admission.
  • For applicants to the Part-time IMC and IMC Online programs, interviews are required. You can schedule an interview at any time during the application process. We encourage you to schedule your interview prior to submitting your application or no later than two weeks afterwards. Interviews are held in person at Medill or off campus in locations that our admissions officers visit. For applicants unable to meet in person, interviews may be held via Skype or similar service. If none of the listed interview times are convenient for you or if no interview slots are currently posted, contact Megan Lenneman to schedule one.
