The journalism and mass communication major has four possible concentrations, or tracks: advertising, broadcast and electronic journalism, print journalism, and public relations. JMC students must officially declare a concentration/track.


Admission Requirement

Students wanting to declare JMC as an academic major must have at least a 2.50 GPA for admission and a 2.25 GPA to stay in the program. In the absence of a 2.50 Samford GPA, a 2.50 overall GPA will be considered. If the GPA falls below 2.25, the student will have one semester to increase it to reach 2.25. If the GPA does not meet or exceed 2.25 after one semester, the student will have to change majors.
