College of Communication > Academics > Communication and Media > Undergraduate > Communication and Media (BA) > College Core Requirements
All majors in the College of Communication (with the exception of Journalism and Public Relations and Advertising) consist of a total of fourteen courses: a four-course common core plus an additional combination of ten program requirements and electives. Journalism and Public Relations and Advertising consist of a total of fifteen courses: a four-course common core plus an additional combination of eleven program requirements and electives.
Four core courses are required of all College of Communication students:
Students are encouraged to complete all four prior to taking additional coursework in the major.
Students who intend to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree in the College of Communication will be required to demonstrate a measure of competence in a modern language, as defined by the college. Such competence may be demonstrated in one of several ways:
Students with some modern language training should consult with the Modern Language Department about the course with which they should begin. Students with little or no previous work in the language will be required to complete the entire three-course introductory sequence.
The Modern Language Option is available to all BA students who wish to study a modern language beyond the level necessary to meet the College’s modern language requirement. Students selecting the option may substitute a three-course language sequence for two learning domain courses and one open elective, or two upper-level courses in the same language for two learning domain requirements. Modern Language Option substitutions may not be used to replace the Scientific Inquiry: Lab or Scientific Inquiry: Science as a Way of Knowing requirement.
Any substitutions must be consistent with the principle that students
complete at least one course in each learning domain.
