WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Purdue University is introducing a new three-year degree in communications this year.
The Think 3 Years! program is being introduced to students this semester. The program requires students to complete 120 credit hours and to take summer classes as well.
Junior Emily Reynolds isn’t in the program, but is on track to meet all of the requirements from the program with a major in human relations communications.
She said she sees herself as a guinea pig for the program.
“The bigger class load and having to take summer classes, I wouldn’t get intimidated by it. If people are thinking about it, it’s definitely do-able,” said Reynolds.
By graduating in three years instead of four, Reynolds said she estimates that it will save her nearly $10,000.
Students have until the end of the second semester to apply for the program.
