Communication and Media

Minor

In the Communication and Media Studies minor, students master fundamental communication skills applicable to technical and professional writing and media studies. They learn to recognize cultural, professional, and ethical conventions in various media and apply sound methods of rhetoric and communication in multiple disciplinary contexts.

Students interested in a wide range of careers will benefit from this minor, which is designed to provide a solid foundation in many aspects of communications, digital humanities, and social media studies. This multidisciplinary minor complements a variety of majors, and students can apply the skills they learn in many fields, including English, business, art, marketing, political science, and public health.

High achieving students can choose to apply for membership as a Deans’ Scholar or Honors Program candidate.
