All JMA majors — and prospective majors — must schedule a face-to-face meeting with their JMA faculty mentor prior to registering for classes each semester. Before meeting their College of Liberal Arts advisor for scheduling, students must meet with their JMA mentor, who will help ensure that students are meeting major requirements and progressing sensibly through the JMA curriculum. Students require a signed form from their mentor before they will be allowed to register for JMA classes. This procedure cannot be handled by phone or e-mail.
Unless you are studying abroad, you must meet with your faculty mentor prior to advisement and scheduling.

*As of the Fall 2013 semester, the department offers ONE Journalism major – Multiplatform Journalism. A Journalism major who came in under the old ‘print’ and ‘broadcast’ majors should follow the new Multiplatform Journalism curriculum if it does not extend your graduation date. If it would extend your graduation date, you can follow the curriculum that was in place when you began your program. If you have questions, please contact the Department Chair, Dr. Mike Dillon.
