Adding a minor in Communication Studies is a great way to add desirable job skills to your resume. Communication skills rate among the most sought after skills across all job categories, including skills like speaking and writing effectively, critical thinking, and a willingness to listen and learn new information.

The Communication Studies minor is among the most flexible on campus. Minors in our program take 24 credits, or just 6 classes. At least 12 of those credits must be at the 300- or 400-level. Students are free to work with their advisor to select the specific courses that will work best for their desired career path.
