To meet a student's unique educational objectives that cannot be satisfied within existing programs, an ad hoc program combines studies in the several areas of the Communication Arts. Consequently, if an established program does not meet a student's needs, a special program can be designed. An ad hoc program can also include courses outside of the department. This gives you a unique opportunity to explore the communications field in tandem with another discipline (e.g., Business and Art).
If you select this program option, you will work with your advisor in designing the course of study.
