Beginning the fall of 2018, the online class opens to applicants worldwide, particularly welcoming working professionals in relevant fields from China to apply. At the same time, the on-campus class opens to applicants worldwide as well. Admitted students may choose the online class or the on-campus class; those who choose the on-campus class will take courses on the main campus of Michigan State University.
The program gives admission priorities to current graduate students in journalism, communication, advertising, public relations, television and film, and design, as well as other related disciplines. Current graduate students may apply for transfer of 9 credits from their coursework. With such credit transfer, the student may complete the remaining 21 credits of coursework for this program within one year or so, to earn the MA degree of Michigan State University in strategic communication.
This program welcomes those with a bachelor's degree and two years of work experience to apply for admission. Such students may need one year and half or two years to complete the 30 credits of coursework to earn the MA degree of Michigan State University in strategic communication.

Michigan State University College of Communication Arts and Sciences has established formal academic collaborative relationships with several colleges of journalism and communication in China, current graduate students at any of these colleges may transfer 9 credits directly to this program, and other current graduate students may apply for credit transfer individually.
Students who plan to start the program in the fall of 2018 should apply now, until February 1, 2018. The admissions office will review the application as soon as its materials are complete.
