It may be to believe that it's already that time of year to enroll for the next spring semester. The course catalog is now available on the Washburn University website.
While looking at the course catalog online, mass media students who are planning to graduate in May of 2016 may experience slight panic when they see that the class “promotion writing” will be offered online in the spring. This class has not been offered in several years, and the mass media department has allowed students to take another upper division elective to fulfill the writing class requirement. Several students have already taken a special topic elective titled “Murder, Media, Mayhem: Crime Reporting” that is taught by adjunct lecturer, Timothy Hrenchir, who currently works for the Topeka Capital Journal.
According to department lecturer, Regina Cassell, students who have taken a substitute for the course during the time it was not being offered will not be required to take the class. The substitute will still satisfy the requirement. This comes as a big sigh of relief for those who are expecting to graduate in either spring or summer 2016.
Be sure to keep a look at your email, to ensure you don’t miss advising for the spring. Senior registration begins on Monday, Nov. 2. Check with your advisor to ensure your proper date to enroll because it is based on class rank.
