The communication studies minor is designed for students interested in acquiring practical skills along with a broad-based understanding of communication theory and research. This minor seeks to provide the knowledge necessary to understand the challenges and opportunities of a diverse and democratic society and the skills to perform effectively and ethically as citizens. Three electives offer students an opportunity to develop an area of expertise (such as strategic communication or media production) within the communication studies minor.
