The new SACM subject code (Study Abroad Communications) would allow students to take a Study Abroad course, taught by a COM faculty member, that would contain academic themes from a communication subject area but would not be a required course within either the Mass Communication or Communication Arts majors. This course would count in either Area V as an additional Arts and Sciences/Liberal Arts course or would count in a student’s general electives category. It would qualify as a non-COM-designated course and would count toward a student’s requirement to have 72 credit-hours outside of the COM academic designation, and it would count toward the 120 credit-hour graduation requirement. The preference is that it would be designated as a 300 or 400 level course, which is consistent with study abroad activities and would help students achieve the 36 credit-hour requirement for upper-level courses.
