Advising

U-M students, transfer students and prospective Communication and Media majors are encouraged to schedule an appointment with a department advisor Sofia Carlsson to discuss all Communication and Media prerequisite courses and the major in Communication and Media through the online appointment system. Here, general advising appointments are also available with our faculty advisor Faith Sparr to discuss the Communication and Media major, course approval, and interest in graduate school.

Students and prospective students are encouraged to meet with a department advisor early in their academic career. It is advisable to meet with a department advisor no later than the first semester of your sophomore year.
