A minor in Communication allows students to complement another major with the essential knowledge and skills that the study of communication provides. In this way, students increase their versatility, adding several key abilities:

  • analyzing, understanding and solving problems
  • communicating and connecting in a diverse world
  • utilizing technology in effective and ethical ways

Students may earn a minor in Communication by taking:

  • 1000: Human Communication and Culture
  • 2400: Media and Society (3 credit course)
  • Choose between: CMM 2100 Journalism Newswriting OR CMM 2120 Message Design
  • PLUS: 12 hours of communication electives (at least 6 hours must be at the 3000 or 4000 level.) For a total of 21 credit hours.
