Declaring Your Minor

When to Declare a JAMS Minor

Ideally, you should declare the minor as soon as possible, so as to take advantage of departmental advising in planning the best sequence of upper-level courses.

Please note, most JAMS classes require the completion of JAMS 101: Introduction to Mass Media with a C or better, and JAMS 201: Media Writing with a C or better.

Declaration Process

Students should contact the JAMS office at 229-4436 or jams-email@uwm.edu. They will be assigned a JAMS advisor and schedule a meeting to complete the declaration process. The JAMS department does not declare new minors during the week before classes begin in the fall or spring semesters or during the first two weeks of those semesters.
