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 CMST classes except the course used to fulfill the general education oral communication competency (CMST 1110 or CMST 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 CMST courses already required for journalism and media communication majors, for a total of 18 hours. All courses in the minor must be completed with a grade of “C” or higher.
