Checksheets in the Major

The Related Area

Each COMS major must declare a “Related Area.” The requirement can be met with a certificate, minor, or custom-designed “related area.” Whatever option you choose, a minimum of 18 hours must be completed. Students should enroll in 9 hours at the 1000- and 2000-level and 9 hours at the 3000- and 4000-level. For those students earning certificates or minors that require only 15 credit hours, you will need to take an additional 3 hours in that related area in order to meet your COMS major requirements. The form below can be downloaded and filled-out collaboratively with your advisor.
