Department of Communication Studies, College of Humanities and Social Sciences

25 credits (minimum)


The field of Communication Studies prepares students to speak and write proficiently, think critically, apply communication concepts competently, work cooperatively in small groups, and reflect on ethical dimensions of their actions. We focus on interactive learning in a high quality curriculum with a low student-to-faculty ratio in the classroom.

Why Consider a Communication Studies Minor?

A minor in Communication Studies will be a valuable complement to any major. The concepts and competencies we teach are essential for engaged citizenship and productive employment in every sector.
