Tuition & Finances
The MMJC is a professional program (Category 2), and is classified differently from thesis-based master's programs (Category I). Thus, the MMJC does not offer a guaranteed funding package like the academic masters programs do.
To offset this challenge, FIMS and Western University have a wide range of financial assistance. Please browse the information below for award, bursary, scholarship and loan options. There are many financial advantages to choosing the one-year MMJC program instead of a two-year degree. First, you’ll pay only three semesters of tuition rather than four, and the cost of living in London for a year is substantially less than two years spent in Toronto, Ottawa, or Vancouver.
While students in other programs are starting the second year of their degree, you’ll be graduating and pursuing your career. If you know you want to pursue a career in media or communications, why spend two years when you can achieve your goal in one?
