When do classes meet?

Each course numbered Comm 400 or above is held one night per week. Most courses meet between 7:00pm - 9:30pm.

Full-time students take three courses per semester.

Part-time students take two courses per semester. Please contact the graduate program director to find out which two courses are required each semester.

What are electives?

Electives are courses you take alongside upper-level Loyola undergraduates. Because you are graduate students, you will be asked to do more work than the undergraduates.

What days/times are electives scheduled for?

Every semester, we offer some or all of the courses on the list of electives for Digital Media and Storytelling.

The days and times of these classes changes every semester. We always offer some 300 level classes between 7–9:30 p.m. to accommodate students who work during the day.

You may also enroll in a project-based directed study with prior approval.
