Students pursuing the Communication minor take a diverse array of courses that emphasize the importance of self-concept, society, public discourses and the role of media in modern society. Students that study communication develop essential skills that employers seek, regardless of their major (National Association of Colleges and Employers). As they expand their understanding of communication, students will also develop live presentation and performance skills. Students develop knowledge to improve analytical, verbal and nonverbal communication skills and learn to critically evaluate complex patterns of human behavior in many contexts.

Program Learning Outcomes

  • Students demonstrate interpersonal, group, and public communication competencies
  • Students illustrate critical writing, research, and analysis skills
  • Students apply theoretical frameworks to media
  • Students model conscientiousness about media’s impact and demonstrate the ethical use, creation, and dissemination of media in its various forms
