Professional Project Track
The 36-hour professional project track includes the core of 18 hours, 3 hours of project, and 15 hours of mass communication electives. If a student has a concentration, he/she will only have 6 hours of mass communication electives to make room for the 9 hours required in the concentration. The electives allow students to select courses in areas that support their special research or job-related needs and interests.
Students on the professional project track will work with a two-member committee. The student will select a project advisor who will provide guidance about the project the semester prior to the final semester. During the final semester, the student will create a professional project and have an oral defense of the project with the two-member committee.
