Minor in Communication Studies

Students may earn a minor in communication studies. To fulfill the minor, students whose major is outside the School of Communication must complete 18 hours in communication studies courses, including 12 hours of upper-level (3000- and 4000-level) courses. All SPCH classes except the course used to fulfill the general education oral communication competency (SPCH 1110 or SPCH 2120) may count toward the minor in communication studies. Journalism and media communication majors may minor in communication studies by taking 12 hours of upper-level (3000- and 4000-level) courses in addition to the six hours of SPCH courses already required for journalism and media majors, for a total of 18 hours. All courses in the minor must be completed with a grade of “C” or higher.
