Mass communications majors can select a minor (15 credit hours) from one of the many minor programs offered by the university. Students who choose not to minor in a specific discipline can instead complete 15 credit hours outside the mass communications major. At least three of the courses must be 3000 level or higher. Should a student decide to complete the five courses in place of a 15-credit hour minor, the student can earn only one “D” in one of the five courses. The student must earn a grade of “C” or better in the remaining four courses.
