To most effectively use the skills developed in the Media and Information Technology major, a content area is needed. Therefore, each student will complete either: (a) another academic major; or (b) an academic minor (or concentration) and take a course in Statistics3 (Quantitative Reasoning Area). 

1Or CMPS 144 

2Also GE NSCI requirement

3MATH 204  or any other statistics course that fits into GE QUAN. If the cognate is a second major in the sciences, any GE QUAN is acceptable.

4Also GE Science elective.

5PHIL 214  Computers and Ethics or equivalent course in Philosophy or Theology/Religious Studies area.

6 The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester.  Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.

*An approved 3-credit EP Foundation Course may be substituted for COMM 100  and C/IL 102 -C/IL 104 .  In this case, the total needed for graduation in this major may be reduced.  Consult with your advisor if you have questions.
