Welcome to the Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture at Virginia Commonwealth University. As a student, you must now face the real or imagined perils of college life: advising, registration and graduation requirements.
The student handbook is designed to answer most of your questions about the Robertson School’s mass communication programs (MASC). As your guide to the program specific to your year of enrollment, it is meant to explain and clarify the procedures and practices of the Robertson School. The VCU Undergraduate Bulletin is the official source for the university’s academic regulations and degree requirements.
You should get a copy of the VCU Undergraduate Bulletin for the year in which you entered VCU. Using the bulletin and this handbook, you should be able to understand and master these procedures and requirements and successfully complete your degree with a minimum of problems. Both the handbook and bulletin in effect when you enter the school are the ones to use for your required curriculum for graduation.
Your adviser is available to help you with curriculum planning and requirements. You are strongly encouraged to consult with your adviser at least once a semester. Ultimately, you are responsible for meeting all of the requirements and staying informed about all of the procedures of the school and the university.
You may download your student handbook in Adobe Acrobat format below. Be sure to download the handbook for the first year you attended VCU. Curricular requirements are specific to the year you entered VCU as a student, which may or may not be your first year in the School of Mass Comm.
Your VCU Bulletin and MASC worksheet year is the year you began at VCU, not when you became a mass communications student. Effective Spring 2013, graduation worksheets are no longer being produced or used for advising. The official University resource for tracking academic progress is Degree Works.
