A Core Curriculum and Optional Course Information.
** See Appendix C for approved list of minors and requirements. Instead of a minor, students may complete 18 SCH of electives, 12 SCH of which must be at the 3000-4000 level, from any discipline, except the major field,outside the College of Nursing and Health Sciences.
TOTAL SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS: 120
1Math elective, select 3 SCH from any math course
above the level of College Algebra.
2COMM electives, select 18 SCH from any remaining COMM courses, with at least 6 SCH from COMM 3102/3202, 3132/3232, 3327, or 4330 (if the topic has a media focus). COMM 4325 may be replaced with MGT 3320. Certain courses (COMM 3324 and 4330) may be taken more than once (when topics vary) for credit within the degree program.
3Foreign Language/Study Abroad, select 6 SCH in course work (not credit by exam) above the university’s foreign language graduation requirement. Thus students who meet the university’s foreign language graduation requirement by earning 6 hours of credit by exam, may take 6 SCH in the same language but at the intermediate level or above, or they may take 6 SCH of another foreign language at the introductory level. This requirement may also be met by earning 6 SCH in any subject while participating in a TAMIU-approved Study Abroad program while living for at least 5 weeks in a non-English speaking country.
NOTE 1: Concentration in Media Production: Will be earned if 15 SCH of the work done for the major are taken from COMM 2331, 3102/3202, 3123/3223, 3132/3232, 3133/3233, 3309, 3327 or 4330 (if topic has a media focus). Students desiring a Concentration in Media Production noted on their transcript must request it on their Application for Graduation.
