The Communication Department offers online courses leading to two undergraduate degrees, two graduate degrees, and a graduate certificate. Each fall and spring semester consists of two online terms and each summer consists of one term.
Online courses are formatted to allow students to work on class assignments on their own schedule but with hard deadlines. (Some required courses taught by other departments may operate on a different schedule and in different formats.) Students may take up to nine hours per term and up to 45 hours in one calendar year.
