In Communication Studies we emphasize personal interactions with our students but
we also recognize that when you have very busy lives, it can be helpful to have a
page with important information listed. We hope you'll find this informative and
To graduate on time : It is important that you meet with your advisor at least once a semester to ensure that you are on track for graduation. Three semesters before you graduate, you need to meet with your advisor to fill out the Upper Division Form. Once your major and minor advisors have signed the form, it needs to be turned in to the Dean's Office in Todd Hall, room 231. This form is evaluated by the university to make sure you meet all requirements for graduation.
Two semesters before you graduate, you need to fill out an Intent to Graduate form and take it to the Dean's Office in Todd Hall, room 231.

Faculty Offices: Our offices are on the 2nd floor of Jones Hall with two exceptions: Dr. Patrick Richey, our new Debate Coach, is in KUC 312 and Dr. Kaylene Gebert is in room 202 of the Honors building. To help you find us, I've added everyone's
office next to their name and email address on the Faculty and Staff page.
Study Abroad: We highly recommend that you consider taking a semester or year abroad to be more fully prepared for the future. For questions about programs that MTSU offers, you can go to the Study Abroad Office in Peck Hall 207, email them at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call them at: 898-5179. If you have general questions about study abroad (why it's valuable, how it can fit into your program of study, etc), contact Dr. Linda Seward, Jones Hall 251, Linda.Seward@mtsu.edu
We highly encourage you to sign up for an internship your senior year. This is a great way to apply knowledge from the classroom in a real world setting as well as to gain experience that you can talk about in job interviews once you graduate. For information on internships, contact Dr. Kaylene Gebert by email (Kaylene.Gebert@mtsu.edu), phone: 615-898-5263, or by stopping in at her office in the Honor's building, room 202.
