Mass Media Emphasis â€“ 42 hours
The Mass Media emphasis is structured for flexibility in meeting individual needs while emphasizing the high degree of professionalism and responsibility expected in media-related industries. This emphasis is for students who want to pursue an individually-tailored course of study preparing them for careers in new media as well as traditional media areas.
After completing the 12-hour School Core, students in this emphasis will select 27 hours from two of the three remaining SMC emphases, with at least 21 hours in upper-level courses. Students must develop a course of study plan in consultation with their adviser. All study plans must be approved by studentsâ€™ advisers. No degree plan will be considered approved until it is signed by the studentâ€™s adviser and the School of Mass Communication director.
