To be admitted to the program, you must first declare a pre-major. Ideally, the pre-major should be declared in the freshman or sophomore year. All premajors need to visit the JMC office in Candelaria 1265 each semester to receive advising and PINs from a premajor advisor.

Application for admission to full JMC-major status should take place during the sophomore year. It is important to note that the JMC major is a two-year program beyond the time at which a pre-major is admitted with full JMC major status. Once you have been admitted to the Journalism and Mass Communications program, a JMC faculty member will be assigned as an academic advisor.
