Departmental Policies

Withdrawing from or Repeating Courses

Communication majors or minors may withdraw from or repeat a course in their area of emphasis or minor only one time.

Multiple Communication Majors/Minors

A student cannot earn either two communication majors or both a communication major and minor in different emphasis areas. This is because there are similar core course requirements and because career preparation in two academic fields is preferable to only one.

Communication Competencies

Competence in both oral and written communication is required for progress in each of the emphasis and minors offered by the department. Competence in oral communication is considered to be the completion of required Speech performance courses with a grade of C (not C–) or above.

Writing is a major component of upper division communication courses. The Department requires all students to have passed ENGL 220 Research and Professional Writing or its equivalent before enrolling in any upper division course.
