DIGITAL MEDIA PRODUCTION ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer "C" 2013 and after)

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The Liberal Studies and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area, literature, lab, Gordon Rule, and multicultural requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Offtrack) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

The Media Production Major is a limited-access major. Acceptance into the School of Communication is competitive and occurs once a year in the spring semester to begin the following summer or fall semester. For complete information regarding admission requirements and the application, see
