PROPOSED CHANGE TO ALLOW MORE HOURS
TO COUNT TOWARD THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ADVERTISING IN THE
COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATION CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2004-2006
|On pages 73-74, in the College of Communication
chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 2002-2004, under
DEGREES, in the section BACHELOR OF SCIENCE
make the following
(No change in paragraphs 1-11)
||Enough additional coursework to make a total of 120 semester
hours. No more than forty-two hours in advertising and no more
than thirty-six [
|semester] hours in [ one subject] any
other single field may be counted toward the degree.
||At least [
|thirty] thirty-six but no more than [ thirty-six] forty-two semester hours of advertising, of which at least twenty-four hours
must be upper-division. The following courses are required: Advertising
318J, 325, 344K, 345J, 350 or 468K, 369J, 370J, and 371J.
||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] forty-eight hours
(including transfer credit) in College of Communication coursework.
||No College of Communication course to be counted toward the degree
may be taken on the pass/fail basis, unless the course is offered
only on that basis.
Students in the Department of Advertising
were constantly requesting appeals to take more hours within the major.
Increasing the total number
of hours within the department and the college will allow students
the flexibility to take more ADV courses in different areas of interest
major. The minimum number of hours required had changed because more
hours are now required for the major in order to better prepare students
for a career in public relations.
