Your Communication Studies advisor will help you:

  • plan a program of study that fits with your educational and career goals
  • identify courses consistent with your interests
  • address problems you might encounter in your classes
  • stay on track for graduation

All Communication Studies majors and minors should meet with an advisor every semester to review their program of study. Although your program of study is subject to the approval of both your advisor and the department chair, students are responsible for developing a coherent program.

COMM Academic Planner

Download and fill out the new COMM Academic Planner! Map out your path to graduation now! Then bring your Planner (in electronic form) to all advising meetings.

General Advising

For general advising questions about topics such as Core GE requirements, the reinstatement process, and other issues not directly related to the major or minor, go to the College of Social Sciences Student Success Center, ACCESS. Online help available at the SJSU Advising Hub.
