The School of Journalism offers work leading to the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Mass Communication and concentrations in Advertising-Public Relations, Visual Communication, Journalism (newspaper/magazine and multimedia journalism), and Media Studies. A total of 37-45 hours of coursework is required for most majors in the School of Journalism. A minimum of 72 hours must be taken outside the college.
Students majoring in Mass Communication may not take any college courses as credit toward their minors. Students outside the college may choose to minor in Mass Communication with an emphasis in any of the School of Journalism’s concentrations.
Transfer credit of up to 12 semester hours toward the major or minor is allowed after careful review of catalog course descriptions. The School of Journalism will not normally grant transfer credit for courses taken at institutions not accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications.
