Minor in Communication

In addition to our thriving undergraduate major, many students find that Communication makes an excellent minor field of study.
Minoring in Communication is very easy to fit in with most programs of study including those outside CLAS. The minor in Communication requires five(5) courses:

  • COM 1000 - Surv of Communication Studies 
  • At least one COM 2000-level course (serves as a prerequisite for COM 3000-level courses)
  • Any three other courses in Communication (one of which must be at the 3000-level, and one which could be a three-credit internship focused on 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 eight specializations, which would let you develop some depth in one area of our field. Please note, if you are interested in a specilizated minor in Media Studies, Media Production or Journalism, you may be required to take COM 1300 - Film Analysis (this course can also count as a CLAS fine arts requirement).

For any student studying abroad, only one course may be transferred to count towards the COM minor.
