In addition to the general requirements for the B.A. degree, speech communication majors must complete 36 semester hours in communication, including the following:
No more than 6 hours of internship credit (COMM 450) may be applied toward COMM electives; no more than 9 credit hours in internships as in COMM 450 and/or GOVT 450 may be applied toward the 120 hours required for graduation.
Students should go to their advisers for guidance in choosing courses. The department has handouts with recommendations for students pursuing careers in advertising, public relations, mass communication, telecommunications, media criticism, international mass communication, interpersonal communication, small group communication, conflict management, intercultural communication, speech writing, public communication, political communication, pre-law, rhetoric, print journalism, broadcast journalism, broadcast performance, radio production, and T.V. production. Different career goals lead to different options for completing general education courses.
All students are encouraged to participate in one of the communication activities: WGMU, Broadside, Debate, Forensics, Student Video Center, Video Yearbook. Many students include an internship during their senior year as a way of gaining practical experience with national and international businesses, associations, or government agencies.
To fulfill CAS general education communication requirements, COMM majors must take COMM 100, 101, or 102. These courses do NOT count as part of the 36-hour major.
COMM majors are urged to consult with an adviser in planning an appropriate schedule that will contribute to developing courses from support areas.
