Pre-Approved COMM Relateds

Related Courses

Courses used to satisfy the Related Group Requirement of the Communication Major (“Relateds”) can be tailored to the unique  academic interests and career  goals of the student.  Relateds must, however, be approved by a Communication academic advisor.  Approval of Relateds will adhere to the following policies, approved by the Communication Department.

For a course to apply to the Communication as a Related, the course must meet the following criteria:

1.   The course must be taken at the 2000 level or higher;

2.   The course must contain content that is relevant to the Communication discipline and share a common curricular focus to Communication study; and
