FAQ

Can I transfer graduate credit I've already earned?

Credit toward the Media, Culture, and Communication MA degree for courses taken at other institutions may be awarded under certain conditions and must be approved by the MA Program Director and the Steinhardt Office of Student Services. Decisions regarding transfer credits are not made prior to matriculation. The courses must be considered appropriate to the degree sought, must not be credited toward another completed degree, must have been coursework completed within ten years of matriculation, and must have been completed with a grade of B or better at an accredited institution of established academic reputation. A maximum of 10 credits can be transferred toward the MA degree.
