The CCI faculty and staff are excited that you are interested in a major in the College of Communication and Information at the University of Tennessee.

The College consists of four schools: School of Advertising and Public Relations, School of Communication Studies, School of Information Sciences, and School of Journalism and Electronic Media.

When applying to the University of Tennessee, you may choose a major in advertising, communication studies, information sciences, journalism and electronic media, or public relations, or if deciding among one or more of these majors, you may apply as C&I Exploratory. Curriculums for the CCI majors are found in the current UT catalog.

Students transferring from community colleges or other universities apply for admission using the online application. The university’s transfer credit policy is available in the current UT catalog. The Office of the University Registrar provides course transfer equivalency tables for Tennessee community colleges and universities. The tables allow you to determine how courses you are currently taking or are planning to take at other Tennessee schools compare to University of Tennessee courses. Please visit the transfer student link for more information about the University of Tennessee.
