Program Description The Department of Mass Media offers bachelor's degrees in:
  • Mass Media
Admission Requirements Students seeking admission to the major or minor must first complete these courses (or their equivalents in the case of transfer students) with a GPA of 3.0 or higher between the two:
  • ENG 101
  • MASS 110
Overall GPA is also considered in determining admission status.
If you are currently enrolled in either ENG101 or MASS110 or both, you can still register for MASS221W for next semester using e-Services. The department will verify your grades in those courses at the end of the semester. If you do not meet the 3.0 GPA, you will lose your spot in MASS221W and won't be able to register again until that 3.0 GPA requirement between ENG101 and MASS110 is met.
Seats in MASS221W are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. If a section is full by the time you register, you can place yourself on a waitlist within e-Services.
Other Requirements Mass Media majors are required to take department courses for a letter grade (except for the internship, which is a P/NC course). To qualify for a Mass Media degree, majors must earn a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better in all Mass Media courses. In addition, they must earn the 2.0 overall GPA required by the university for graduation.
