Today, for the first time since transferring to Cal State Fullerton I met with an academic advisor.
I learned from Tammy Rogers that I have to take three more "collateral courses" to complete my degree in journalism. These courses are upper division "liberal arts" classes that are required in addition to the journalism course work I am taking.
This means that i will have to take a class during intersession (a class that is is taught during Christmas vacation) and then take 15 units next sememster, after which I will take the six unit internship required to graduate next summer.
So, I will be pretty busy with school for the next ten months...
I am on schedule to graduate in August of 2008 at this rate.
To graduate from CSUF, 120 units are required. Full-time students take 12 units... so for someone to attend school full-time for four years, they will only reach 96 units, 24 units short of the requirement to graduate...
Does anyone graduate in four years anymore?
