About your electives • Electives are just that—your choice. You choose 3. • Pencil in your choices early in your program so you can plan accordingly. The sample electives on these slides are just starting points. Choose what you think will best meet your needs (in consultation with me). • For example, if you plan a career in PR in politics, you could combine the 2 Strat. Comm classes with next Fall’s MDIA Special Topics seminar in Social Media & Politics. • Following are ideas for just a few majors.
