Mass Media

Mass Media Emphasis – 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 students’ advisers. No degree plan will be considered approved until it is signed by the student’s adviser and the School of Mass Communication director.
