CHANGE IN THE MAJOR REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREE IN ADVERTISING IN THE COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATION CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 1998-2000

 

On page 69, in the College of Communication chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the section "BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ADVERTISING," subsection "MAJOR REQUIREMENTS," make the following change in requirement two:

2.
At least six semester hours of coursework must be taken in the College of Communication but outside the department. However, no student may count toward the degree more than forty-two hours (including transfer credit) in College of Communication coursework. Coursework in American Sign Language may not be used to fulfill any major requirement and is not included in the forty-two hours of coursework in the College of Communication that may be counted toward the degree.



Rationale:
American Sign Language may be used to satisfy the language requirement in the College of Communication but does not count toward any major requirement.
