Communication Arts Minor

Program Details

The minor in communication arts is designed to provide students in other majors with an opportunity to develop their understanding of the communication process and to refine specific communication competencies. Students concerned with preparing themselves to begin a career upon graduation may focus on learning more about the critical role of information and communication in the operation of organizations, and on developing the skills necessary in order to communicate effectively with other people. Those students who are interested in pursuing graduate work may complement their major area of study with an understanding of human interaction from a communication perspective.
