Communication Minor

For students who like Communication but would rather major is something else, the Department of Communication offers a Minor in Communication. This minor is a scaled-down version of the major and many of the courses are the same -- just not as many of them.  The Department also offers a minor in Film Studies and Production for students wishing to learn more about making their own videos.

The outline of the Communication minor is below.
