Most undergraduate courses in Communication are open for enrollment to students
throughout the University. However, obtaining the Bachelor of Arts Degree with a
major in Communication requires formal application and acceptance. The degree is
granted by the College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Liberal and Professional
Studies, although the major curriculum is designed, administered, and instructed
by the Annenberg School for Communication. All decisions concerning admission to
the major are made by The Annenberg School.
Students may apply for admission to the major during either the second semester
of their sophomore year or the first semester of their junior year. Applications
are not accepted in any other semesters. Exceptions are permitted only for students
transferring from other universities with junior class standing, whose applications
will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Students must meet the following requirements prior to application
Alison Berstecher, Director of Student Services and Registrar, provides academic
and procedural advising for prospective Communication majors. Prospective students
are invited to meet with Ms. Berstecher to learn more about the major in the Undergraduate
Office (Room 204 in The Annenberg School). Appointments may be made by contacting
Ms. Berstecher at either 215-898-8892 or
firstname.lastname@example.org. Ms. Berstecher will do her best to accommodate
meeting requests. The Undergraduate Office is open Monday through Friday from 9am
to 5pm. Meetings are not available on weekends or during University holidays.
