Medaille Partners With Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications to Offer New Opportunities to Communication Students
Medaille College has signed three agreements with the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University that will take effect immediately. These agreements, which will create new opportunities for communication majors at Medaille, include a 4+1 program, a 3+1 program and a 30% scholarship agreement.
Similar to Medaille’s 3+3 agreement with the University at Buffalo School of Law, the 3+1 agreement with the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications gives Medaille students the chance to finish their bachelor’s degree in communications and a master’s degree from Newhouse in only four years. The 4+1 program allows students to complete both degrees in five straight years. Both agreements include ten master’s degree program options at Syracuse University: advertising; arts journalism; audio arts; broadcast and digital journalism; magazine, newspaper and online journalism; media and education; new media management; multimedia, photography and design; public relations / international relations; or television, radio and film.
Students interested in the 3+1 or 4+1 program should consult with their academic advisor during their freshman or sophomore year to discuss and plan for the application process, and to ensure they meet the academic requirements.
In addition to the coursework agreements, Newhouse is also offering the potential of a 30% tuition scholarship for up to two communication program graduates from Medaille each year.
A graduate of S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications herself, Medaille College Department of Communication & Sport Studies Chair Lisa M. Marsherall was instrumental in paving the way for this partnership through her work in developing the College’s robust communication program.
“This idea came to me when I realized that 10 of Medaille College’s communication graduates have attended Newhouse for their graduate degrees over recent years,” says Marsherall. “As I kept in touch with the students, I was able to get the Newhouse Telecommunications Law course waived for our Communication Law and Ethics course. At this point, I knew that further partnerships and opportunities were possible. Medaille’s Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs Michelle Bogdan was instrumental in getting the agreement developed and signed in a timely manner.”
The partnership with Syracuse University is another example of the work Medaille is doing to make private higher education in New York more affordable, and it further exhibits the College’s commitment to preparing its students to become leaders in emerging and sought-after fields.
