 NOTE: The sample course sequence is meant to be used as a example. Please consult a Journalism advisor to help plan a course schedule.

Parts of this curriculum take effect in Fall 2013. Students who took JRN 110 before Fall 2013 will continue in that sequence.

*Students are required to pass 111 to progress in JRN skills courses.

**These courses follow a sequence (e.g.  JRN 370   and  JRN 371 ). See Bulletin course descriptions for specifics.

***Or courses that count toward a second major.
