Second Major Requirements

Requirements for a Second Major Within the Media Department

Students who complete the requirements for one of the majors within the Media department can complete the requirements for a second Media bachelor's degree by taking an additional 24 credits negotiated with and approved by a Media department mentor. These credits fulfill the requirement in the McAnulty College of Liberal Arts that a student must have a minor or a second major.

Double Major With English

Students can double major in English and either Digital Media Arts, Multiplatform Journalism or Strategic Public Relations and Advertising. If the first selected major is English, 30 credits are required in English while 30 more are required from one of the Media majors listed above. If the first selected major is one of the Media majors listed above, 36 credits are required in Media while 24 credits are required in English.

Double Major With Other Departments

Students should always consult with their advisers, especially when combining Media majors with other majors — liberal arts or otherwise — so as to complete minimum requirements.
