The Communication Minor offers a sequence of courses that engages students with the theoretical and practical dimensions of communication. In these courses, students will refine their understanding of how communication affects everyday public, professional, and private life. In addition, students will strengthen their skills in oral and written communication and develop literacy in their critical engagement with mass and digital media. The minor requires five courses. No more than one transfer course may count towards the minor.
