In addition to these core courses, students may also choose electives in broadcast, drama, journalism, and/or speech. Moreover, students are encouraged to reenroll in Advanced Drama, Journalism Production, and Speech if they have great interest in exploring these areas in college or professionally. (Creative Writing may also be taken in addition to senior core courses as an elective.)
