Major code BC5329

Curricula and Requirements

A communication professional is asked to have reasonable familiarity with a number of concerns, both general and technical. The communication management major requires a multidisciplinary approach involving courses in other participating schools and departments, in addition to coursework offered by the School itself.

All majors in the program must earn a grade of C (2.0) or better in ITS 214, ITS 220, ITS 222, and ITS 302. If you earn a grade below C in any of these courses, you will not be permitted to enroll in upper-division ITS courses. Courses may be retaken according to University policy.

Additionally, to remain active in the major, you must maintain a 2.0 average in all required courses, not solely those labeled as communication management courses.

You are required to complete a secondary area of concentration. Common areas of concentration have included business management, marketing, management information systems, political science, computer science, and communication studies. Other areas are possible as well. You develop your specific secondary area of concentration with your advisor’s approval after completing ITS 214. Further information is available from the school office.

Each student must complete the core courses, focus-area requirements, and other University requirements.

Requirements are structured to meet simultaneously the University’s General Education requirements and the needs of the major field.
