Media Studies Major
The Media Studies Major is designed for students with an interest in media or other related communication fields. Majors may earn either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree and, in addition to core courses, must select one of three concentrations: Advertising, Journalism, or Production Technology.
Students are encouraged to select one of the concentrations no later than the second semester of their sophomore year.
All majors in Media Studies must complete: 1) 43-45 hours of Core Curriculum requirements; 2) the 6 to 8-hour B.S. requirement or the 6 to 12-hour B.A. requirement; 3) 6 hours of the School of Communication Core Requirements and 36 hours of a concentration in Advertising, Journalism, or Production Technology; and 4) elective courses for a total of 120 hours. Students are encouraged to take 300-level and above courses for their electives. A minor is strongly recommended.
Core Curriculum Requirements (43-45 credits)
In College Core B , all majors in programs in the College of Humanities and Behavioral Sciences are required to pass a second course in Social and Behavioral Sciences; i.e., CHBS majors cannot fulfill College Core B requirements with a Health and Wellness course.
