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.
