The School of Communications is pleased to announce exciting curriculum changes to take effect in Fall 2015. The changes will affect the core curriculum and journalism curriculum (please note the electives remain unchanged).
New Core Curriculum
The new curriculum replaces Comms 211 and 303 with a new core of seven skills courses, of which students will choose four. Each of these courses are half a semester in length, accounting for 1.5 credit hours.

New Journalism Curriculum
Journalism becomes “News Media” in the new curriculum. The biggest change is the addition of a new capstone, “Comms 490 Media Innovations” that allows students to work on high-end editorial projects. Meanwhile, the print and digital course requirements have been streamlined.

Please note that we will need to make course substitutions and individually adjust course prerequisites in order to accommodate students who are already admitted to Communications. Please see advisement or come to the Communications office if you need assistance.
