On page 70, in the College of Communication chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 2002-2004, under the heading DEGREES, make the following changes:


DEGREES OFFERED

In the College of Communication, six undergraduate degrees are offered: Bachelor of Science in Advertising, Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders, Bachelor of Science in Communication Studies, Bachelor of Journalism, Bachelor of Science in Public Relations, and Bachelor of Science in Radio-Television-Film. The requirements of each degree are divided into special requirements, prescribed work, and major requirements; these are given later in this chapter under the heading for the degree. In addition, the student must fulfill the University-wide graduation requirements given on pages 16–18 and the special requirements of the College of Communication given on this page.

A student may not earnmore than two undergraduate degrees from the College of Communication.


RATIONALE: The addition of limiting students to two degrees will better enable the College of Communication to provide adequate opportunities to take classes for students who are attempting their first and/or second degree(s).
