Admission to the Department

The Department of Communication seeks to admit students who are dedicated to pursuing a degree in the varied fields of communication.

Students may declare a major in Advertising, Communication Studies, Journalism or Public Relations as soon as they meet the university's requirements for declaring a major.

Resource limitations place a restriction on the number of students who can be served effectively by the department's Electronic Media/Broadcasting major. Therefore, students must apply for admission to the EM/B major no later than Feb. 1 for the following fall semester, or no later than Sept. 15 for the following spring semester.
