Degrees and Requirements

College-Level Requirements

The Scripps College of Communication offers curricula leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Science in Communication (communication studies, media arts and studies, information and telecommunication systems), Bachelor of Science in Journalism, and Bachelor of Science in Visual Communication.

As a candidate for a degree in the Scripps College of Communication, you must satisfy the requirements established by the program in which you are enrolled. Additionally, you are required to meet the General Education requirements that have been established by Ohio University. Most University General Education courses can satisfy both program and University requirements. Consult your advisor on the dual application of those courses.

You must also have a minimum total of 120 earned hours with a 2.0 accumulative grade point average (GPA) and a 2.0 GPA in your major. When courses are retaken, only the final hours and grades earned count toward graduation.

After transferring into the Scripps College of Communication, you must complete a minimum of 32 credit hours as a resident of the school in which your major resides. In certain cases, exceptions may be made by the academic dean, in consultation with the director of the school you plan to enter.
