4-Year Plan

This sample shows just one possible pathway to earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in four years. This plan does not replace the advice of your Journalism, Advertising, and Media Studies advisor or your College Undergraduate Advisor. You are cautioned to meet regularly with both to create a personalized plan that matches your particular circumstances rather than following this verbatim.
