Degree Requirements and Course Descriptions
Advertising majors will take a variety of courses including Carolina Core, SJMC core courses, major specific courses and courses to fulfill minor or cognate requirements. See the Undergraduate Studies Bulletin for the complete outline of all the advertising degree course requirements and regulations. It also contains course descriptions, as well as learning outcomes for the advertising major.
In order to stay on track towards graduation, the university offers an online program "DegreeWorks." DegreeWorks, which is accessible in Self Service Carolina, is kind of like your personal automated advisor because it displays the coursework you have already taken and shows how and where it applies to your major and/or minor requirements. It also allows you to hypothetically change majors or minors to see how changes would impact your expected graduation date.
DegreeWorks is only available for students who enrolled in Fall 2014 or later.
If you started at USC before Fall 2014, please see your assigned academic advisor for specifics regarding your degree plan.
