A minor in communication from Saint Louis University 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 critical abilities: analyzing, understanding and solving problems; communicating and connecting in a diverse world; and utilizing technology in effective and ethical ways. Working with their faculty mentor, students can develop a tailored program of study for their minor that fits their individual goals and interests.
