Minor in Communication Studies for Non-Communication Majors

The Minor in Communication Studies for Non-Majors is aimed at providing an outlet to those who are not familiar with the subject of Communication Studies, yet willing to develop better communication skills and expert knowledge, reflecting their personal and professional needs to improve their proficiency in communication. Recognizing that better communication skills can affect and enhance the quality of one’s life in various avenues, it is crucial that the Communication Studies department offers a minor program to influence our students’ ability to communicate beyond SPCH-S 121 Public Speaking.

The new minor program will also provide a perspective outside of one’s familiar academic environment, and stimulate intellectual and professional knowledge to strengthen students when working in their chosen professional career or when seeking an advanced degree at any professional or graduate programs.

  • Students must complete all requirements in the minor with a grade of C or higher.
  • All course are 3 credits, unless otherwise stated.

Minor Requirements (15 cr.)
  • JOUR-C 200 Introduction to Mass Communications
  • JOUR-J 200 Reporting, Writing, and Editing I
  • SPCH-S 205 Introduction to Speech Communication
  • Any two courses from 300- or 400-level under JOUR, SPCH, and TEL taught by Communication Studies faculty
