Admission to the M.A. in Media and Strategic Communication is facilitated by the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences (CCAS). All application materials should be sent directly to CCAS and questions can be answered by the  CCAS Admissions Office (askccas@gwu.edu). The accelerated combined degree program for current SMPA undergraduates has a separate admissions process.
