The Hugh Downs School of Human Communication (HDSHC) welcomes all Barrett students!  Whether you are a communication major, minor, or taking our classes as electives, we would like to make your experience fit with your plans and needs as a Barrett student.

Each Honors student in the Hugh Downs School selects a program of study that mixes core requirements and electives. This program of study is best developed with time spent discussing your interests and dreams with your COM advisor, Barrett advisor, and your HDSHC faculty advisor.  All work with you to help you make the most out of your college experience. 

Information for our Barrett students regarding Honors Enrichment Contracts, thesis planning, and course registration, selecting a thesis advisor/director, and much more, is available on a website created especially for Barrett students in the HDSHC. It is especially important for anyone approaching the dates for early and regular submission of your thesis prospectus to read this website carefully.

The Faculty Honors Advisors for the HDSHC are Professor Amira de la Garza and Professor Pauline Cheong.  While Professor de la Garza is on sabbatical during the fall, 2018, Professor Cheong is available to meet with you to help you answer questions about your Honors experience and requirements as students and majors in communication. For questions, or to make an appointment, send her an email at Pauline.cheong@asu.edu.
