Starting fall semester 2012, CCM’s Division of Electronic Media (E-Media) will offer a minor to all UC undergraduate students. Admission to the program is selective and applications may be submitted between Dec. 12, 2011 and Feb. 4, 2012.
“Students have always wanted to take our classes and we think our curriculum will be helpful to a wider range of students. Digital media is important in many career fields,” said Marjorie Fox, E-Media division head. Preference will be given to freshman and sophomore applicants because of the two-year requirement to complete the minor.
The division intends to accept only 10 students for the 18-credit minor in its first year. Minor students will be required to take six courses: three core classes and three electives. To ensure major and minor students are able to enroll in the classes needed in a timely manner, more sections of selected courses will be added.
