Communication and Journalism Advising
Follow these guidelines for how to request, schedule, and prepare for a major advising meeting.
Not all major advising matters require a face-to-face meeting. Many questions can be answered by email. You are welcome to email questions to Ryan Pumroy.
We can advise you on:
- Majors in Communication Studies
- Major in Journalism
- Minors in Communication Studies
- Minor in Journalism
- Minor in Professional Communication
If you have questions, please email Ryan Pumroy at email@example.com. It is preferred you contact the office via email in advance.
When to Seek Advising
Advising for upcoming summer and fall semesters should be completed by March. Advising for upcoming spring semesters should be completed by October. Advising for your major is not required, but it is highly recommended to ensure you are on the right track. Students are welcome to seek advising whenever help is needed.
Advising on general education requirements, B.A. requirements or B.S. requirements can be obtained by visiting the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences advising office.
For advising on majors and minors outside of the Department of Communication, you must contact those respective departments.
