College of Arts & Sciences (Graduate) – (Communication):

New Course & Program of Study (2 packages)

11/01/18: Passed

11/13/18: Approved

Log Number: 201808-29

Communication-Graduate

 

Change a degree-major of an existing program

Master of Science - Communication Management Major

 

Summary of changes:

The M.S. in Communication Management degree requests to make MMC 6971-Thesis/Applied Research Project (6 credits) optional for the degree by allowing students to take a non-thesis option instead. The non-thesis option would require students to take an additional 6 credit hours from the list of Departmental Electives in the current Program of Study. The total credit hours for both Thesis/Applied Research Project and Non-Thesis Option are 36 credits. An additional course, MMC5XXX Strategic Social Media (3 credits), will be added to the list of Departmental Electives to provide more options. The requested change will increase the options for many of our full-time working professional students.
