See major for additional course work and GPA requirements.
Majors are required to complete COMM core courses before registering in upper-division courses. Students who register for a course for which they have not completed prerequisite(s) with a grade of C or better are subject to being dropped from the course.
Because of the high demand for many COMM courses, students who miss the first class day without prior consent are subject to being dropped from the course so that other students may be added. It is the student’s responsibility to secure prior consent of the instructor.
Students must also complete the required 21 hours in upper-level education courses (EDCI 3800, EDCI 3830, EDCI 4060, EDCI 4070, EDCI 4108, EDCI 4118, EDCI 4840) and meet all GPA requirements to apply for state certification. In order to enroll for the first required education course, the student must make application to the certification program in the College of Education in Matthews Hall, Room 105.
All state certification requirements and information on required examinations is available on the web site of the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC), www.tea.state.tx.us.
