Tuition & Finances
Category II funding informationAs a professional program the MMJC is classified differently (Category II) from thesis-based master's programs (Category I). This means there is not a guaranteed funding package like the one offered by thesis-based programs. However, an advantage of the MMJC program is that it can be completed in a single year, saving you not only a year of your time, but also the living expenses that would be necessary for a second year at school. If you know you want to pursue a career in the media, why spend two years when you can achieve your dream in one?
In addition, FIMS and Western University have a wide range of options for financial assistance. During the 2016/2017 academic year, roughly 50% of our MMJC class received financial assistance through scholarships and awards. We have more than $57,000 of funding available. Please browse the information below for award, bursary, scholarship and loan options.
