Advising for Communication and Media Studies

Students majoring or minoring in Communication, majoring in Media Studies, or minoring in Critical Intercultural Communication have two advisors—an academic advisor and a faculty advisor.

The academic advisors for department majors and minors are Brandon Bogges and Grecia Flores.  They advise students on University requirements, transfer credits, and degree planner.  For general advising, including university/graduation requirements and General Education advising, please  schedule a time to meet with a staff advisor in the Office of Academic Advising

Faculty advisors are tenure track faculty in the department, see the list of advisors provided below. The role of faculty advisors is multi-layered. They (1) advise students on curriculum and requirements for the majors and/or minors; (2) approve transfer work for requirements in either major; (3) advise students on their progress via Degree Planner and major advising worksheets; (4) guide students on course selection given students’ interests; and/or (5) discuss graduate school and/or internship possibilities, among other topics of conversation.

Students are strongly encouraged to visit with their faculty advisor in addition to their academic advisor. Students may track their progress using the advising worksheets and review university Graduation Requirements.
