The Mass Communication major is divided among an academic core based on principles of inquiry, a set of core electives, and four options. This major prepares students to create, produce, deliver, and understand the effects of mediated messages. To accomplish the major, a student must complete the academic core and one of the options.
This major requires a minor. The minor cannot be in this option, nor can it be the general Mass Comm minor. An overall WSU GPA of 2.5 is required for graduation and for enrolling in many Mass Comm courses.
