Below is information specifically for the undergraduate advertising sequence. Visit the School’s main undergraduate advising page for general information, including how students see an adviser, graduation worksheets and the student handbook. Read about the graduate advertising program.
Students begin in the “foundation” taking introductory courses. After successful completion of these courses students interested in being a Mass Communications student must petition to be accepted into the School and be allowed to take upper-level classes.
MASC prerequisites are noted in parentheses. Note there are additional general education and collateral requirements that students must complete in the foundation. Refer to the VCU Bulletin or appropriate graduation worksheet.
The advertising sequence has two concentrations, creative and strategic. Students must meet with an adviser to complete one of the following petition forms and a change of major/minor/concentration form.
MASC 101, 201 and 204 are prerequisites for all upper-level MASC courses. Additional prerequisites are listed in parentheses. Read the official course descriptions. All courses are three credits.
Students are required to complete a total of 120 credits to graduate. Students also need to graduate with 80 non-MASC credits (65 credits must be earned within liberal arts). Additionally, students must earn 45 credits in 300-400 level courses (includes all 300-400, MASC and non-MASC).
