The Memorandum of Courses (MOC) articulates your planned course of study as a Master's degree seeking student in the College of Journalism and Mass Communications. The MOC should include all courses you have completed, are in the progress of completing or plan to complete during your degree program.

The MOC should be completed in consultation with your CoJMC faculty adviser and the graduate student services coordinator. The MOC should be completed in the first half of your program, before you have completed 18 credit hours.
