Applicants do not need degrees in any specific major to be admitted into our program. No specific coursework is required.
A lack of media experience does not make an applicant ineligible to apply. However, there is a highly selective admissions process. Many of our graduate students had at least 2 years of media experience prior to starting the program.
Undergraduate students must be enrolled for a minimum of 12 quarter hours to be classified as full-time; registration for a minimum of 8 quarter hours is full-time for graduate students. Special permission must be granted to enroll in more than 16 hours for undergraduate students or 12 hours for graduate students per quarter. Such permission must be approved by the Academic Dean before registration.
At OSMC, we try to keep class sizes small in order to provide a more interactive environment between instructor and students. On average, 8-12 students will be in a single course. Special lectures or seminars may have more students.
OSMC offers internship opportunities through its Ministry Internship program. The school works with many ministry affiliates that offer a variety of positions. Please reach out to your academic advisor for Internship opportunities.
