Communication Studies Minor

The Communication Studies minor aims to help students realize how communication constructs the social world in which they live and connects them to it.  Communication is a tool to build, maintain, and navigate relationships with individuals, institutions, and society. Through study of different types and contexts of communication, students recognize the vital role it plays in the negotiation of everyday life, understand the underlying theories and principles, and build the skills to put them into practice.

The following requirements below are intended for students beginning fall 2024.
To declare your minor, please speak to your academic advisor for assistance.
