    2.     MASS 110 (Introduction to Mass Media).
    Students who have attained the 3.0 GPA for the above courses will then be considered for admission to MASS 221, but only after completing the department's diagnostic exam, which is offered at particular dates and times each semester. The exam is a 1 hour long objective test over English grammar, punctuation, spelling and vocabulary.
    After all applicants have taken the exam in a given term, faculty choose who will enter the program for the following term by considering each applicant's diagnostic-exam score in conjunction with overall GPA and prerequisite grades.
