Communication - Minor
The Department of Communication offers a minor in Communication, along with a minor in Journalism, and majors in Communication, Telecommunication Media Studies as well as University Studies-Journalism Studies. The minor in Communication incorporates a course in communication skills with a choice of one of two courses central to the study of communication and then rounded out with a choice of three courses from among the rich array of offerings. Skills courses range from public speaking, interviewing or argumentation and debate to difficult dialogues or communication technology skills, to note only a few. The central courses afford the opportunity to examine how language is used to influence and persuade, or to learn how communication behavior can be described and predicted in a variety of contexts. This minor is open to all majors.
