Additional Information:


A student may declare pre-communication studies (PCOM) as the intended major after earning a minimum 24 semester credit hours and a grade of “B” or above in COM 105 . A PCOM major may declare communication studies (COM) as their major after earning a grade of “B” or above in COM 200 . A student may repeat or audit one foundations class, either COM 105  or COM 200 , one time in order to replace one grade lower than a “B” for admittance to the department. A final grade of “F” due to admitted or adjudicated academic dishonesty shall not be replaced if the course is repeated. Further, because it cannot be replaced, a failing grade in either COM 105  or COM 200  received due to admitted or adjudicated academic dishonesty shall be the grade considered for admission into the COM major and thus will disqualify a student from admission to the major. All UNCW continuing and transfer students are subject to this gateway requirement at the time of application.

A minimum “C” (2.00) average across the seven core courses and 21 additional hours of communication studies coursework is required. Differently titled courses with the numbers 295 or 495 may be repeated for additional credit.

A maximum number of credit hours may be counted toward graduation from these courses as follows: COM 212  (8 hours), COM 491  (9 hours), COM 498  (12 hours).

COM 160  may be used to fulfill university studies or be counted toward the COM major but not both.
