Three Year Plan

You can complete your required course work in an accelerated three-year plan, a sample of which is shown here.

This sample program plan presents an overview of courses that students majoring in communication must complete to obtain an undergraduate degree within three years. Your program plan will differ, depending on previous credit received, your course schedule, and available course offerings.

We strongly encourage students to develop a personal program plan in consultation with an academic adviser.
