I have a post-graduate diploma from England and want to finish my MA, but the requirements are unreal. Should I scrap and start over in the US?

I have a post-graduate diploma (a degree one-below an MA) in broadcast journalism from a university in England, and was planning on getting my masters but got a job before MA work started and took the job. Now I am back in the states working in in radio and want to finish my MA. The requirements mean that whatever I do, it needs to be done for a British broadcasting organization, which means that my own show, which would be happy to have my work, is out of the picture. I would love to finish my MA in journalism. Any advice on whether schools would let me transfer my post-grad diploma and just let me start my thesis, or would I have to start over from scratch would be appreciated. Anyone else have to deal with this kind of thing? I am American, btw.
