Additional elective learning may be accepted when appropriate to the major. Acceptable elective learning may include prior and certified learning that meets program criteria for acceptance. All additional electives must be endorsed by the major’s chair and the dean and documented in the approved degree plan prior to registration.

Culminating Graduation Requirement

As part of course work in the major, every student will complete a culminating graduation requirement (CGR).

Students will be required to complete the CGR by satisfactory completion of a student electronic portfolio that will consist of the assessment artifact which is a 10-page APA formatted research paper, from each of the five core courses. In addition, a present and future resume from the CJM 307 course will be included in the portfolio.

The portfolio is a collection of student papers that will demonstrate student learning and achievement of university, major, and course competencies and outcomes. Each artifact must receive a grade of C or better to meet the minimum requirement.
