IMC majors may choose between three tracks in the degree program: traditional, graphic design, and sports communications.

Traditional Track: Select from upper-level communications, marketing, and behavioral science courses to prepare you for communications research. This track caters to students interested in careers in public relations, marketing or other communicative fields.

Graphic Design Track: Students complete advanced courses in graphic design, photography, and media buying. The graphic design track prepares students for careers in the advertising and creative industries.

Sports Communications Track: Students complete advanced courses in sports writing, sports magazine, and sports issues in the media. Additionally, students complete a sports internship to prepare for careers in sports writing or broadcasting, or sports management.
