Our goal is to offer a rotation of classes which meets the needs of both our online and face to face students. By looking at the degree plan and tracking your progress in Peoplesoft (, you can make sure you are on track for a degree. You should also regularly consult with your faculty adviser. Our goal is to help students develop a more narrowly tailored degree- particularly those students interested in communication in business and professional contexts. Of course, students who were at UTPB before the changes who stay continuously enrolled will be welcomed to graduate under either degree plan. We are excited about the opportunity to help you find your own best degree.
