A minor in communication allows students to complement another major with the essential knowledge and skills that the study of communication provides. In this way, students increase their versatility, adding several key abilities: analyzing, understanding and solving problems; communicating and connecting in a diverse world; and utilizing technology in effective and ethical ways. Working with their faculty mentor, students are allowed to develop a personally tailored program of study for their minor that fits their individual goals and interests.
