All incoming students initially become
Communication Interest (COMI) majors. This includes: first-year students, students already enrolled at UD who either had different majors or
were undeclared, and students transferring from other universities. Communication Interest majors are required to take a 4 course sequence: COMM245, COMM256, COMM330, and COMM301. Based on the grades earned (GPA) in these four courses, the top 125 COMI students will be admitted into the Communication major in June of each year. Only the first grade obtained in any of these four courses will be used to calculate the GPA in the COMI sequence of courses. Further information is available for transfer students in the FAQ's category in the menu to the left.
12-credit prerequisite to the COMM major:
Communication Interest Major:
COMM 256 Principles of Communication Theory
COMM 245 Media Communication and Culture
COMM 330 Communication and Interpersonal Behavior
COMM 301 Introduction to Communication Research Methods
