  1. The Comenian (Moravian’s student newspaper): a feature article or other piece assigned by the editor(s);
  2. The Moravian College Publication Relations Office: campus and community-wide blog post, newsletter article, press release, or other piece assigned by a member of the Public Relations staff;
  3. The Moravian College Theatre Company : program notes or other dramaturgical materials, as assigned by the director.

English majors who are also pursuing certification in Education will be exempt from this requirement but are encouraged to complete HLAs as well.
