Communication Minor


Communication Minor Learning Outcomes

Students who successfully complete a minor in Communication Arts are expected to:

  • Learn analytical, critical and/or creative approaches to the arts of communication;
  • Demonstrate competence in the field’s basic skills of communication: writing, performing, or creating visual productions.

The Communication Minor

A minor in Communication Arts consists of 24 semester credits including one introductory course (either COMRT 120 or COMRT 145) and five other COMRT courses from among those listed for the Communication major. Two courses should be at the 200 level (can include FSCOM 201), and an additional two courses must be at the 300 level or higher. An approved 2-4 credit internship (COMRT 500) may count towards the minor, but does not count for the 300-400 level requirement. All courses taken for the minor within the department must be taken on a letter grade basis. A maximum of four transfer credits may be counted towards the minor.
