Communication and Culture

As part of the prescribed work for all degrees under catalogs prior to 2020-2022, students must complete three semester hours of coursework in the Moody College of Communication dealing with the study of communication issues concerning at least one minority or nondominant group within the United States. Courses used to fulfill this requirement may also be used to fulfill the cultural diversity in the United States flag requirement and other degree requirements.

These lists are subject to change.
