Academic Advising

The Journalism Program schedules group advising sessions each semester, but majors also are encouraged to schedule one-on-one meetings with a Journalism faculty member for individualized attention at least one a year. Email Journalism Program Director Patti Newberry to set up your one-on-one advising session.

The first-year Media & Culture advisor is Dr. Ron Becker. Upper-class Media & Culture majors are assigned a major advisor. Those advisors are Drs. Ron Becker, Bruce Drushel, Kathleen German, Howard Kleiman, Lisa McLaughlin, Ron Scott and David Sholle.

The Strategic Communication advising is done by all the STC faculty. Christe McKittrick is the chief advisor for the major.

If you wish to change your advising assignment, please contact the MJF master program associate, Kim Hensley, in 120 Williams Hall. We cannot guarantee we can accommodate your request, but will make every attempt to do so.

To plan and discuss completion of your College of Arts & Science and Miami Plan course requirements, schedule an appointment with an advisor in the College's Advising Office, 146 Upham Hall. It's a busy, busy place, so it would be wise to call (513) 529-3031 with plenty of lead time to get your desired appointment time.
