In addition to our thriving undergraduate major, many students find that Communication makes an excellent minor field of study.
Minor for Arts & Sciences Students Only
For those students currently enrolled in the College of Arts & Sciences, minoring in Communication is very easy to fit in with most programs of study. Students within the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences can minor in Communication by taking five (5) courses:
- COM 1000 - Surv of Communication Studies
- At least one (1) COM 2000-level course (serves as a prerequisite for COM 3000-level courses)
- Any three (3) other courses in Communication
This means that, after taking our introductory course, you are invited to take a look at all of our course offerings, all of our specializations, and design a minor that fits the specific interest that you have in the field of Communication. You might even choose to focus your minor in one of our 8 specializations, which would let you develop some depth in one area of our field.
Please note, however, that if you are interested in a minor specializing in Media Studies, Media Production, or Journalism, you may be required to take, as one of your 4 other courses, COM 1300 - Film Analysis (this course can also count as your A&S fine arts requirement).
If you have questions about a Communication minor, or want to learn more about our specializations, please contact us.
