Communication Arts Minor

The communication arts minor allows students in other majors to broaden their understanding of human communication while also developing deeper knowledge and practical skills that can enhance their professional lives and complement their major field of study.

For more information, contact Jeff Klenotic, minor supervisor.

The communication arts minor requires completion of five courses (20 credits), according to the requirements below. A minimum GPA of 2.0 in minor courses is required, with no individual grade lower than a C-. Courses taken on a pass/fail basis may not be used for the minor. Students should work with their advisor to ensure that any prerequisites for CA courses have been met, or that permission to enter the course has been granted by the course instructor. Courses used to satisfy Discovery Program requirements may be used to satisfy CA minor requirements. No more than 8 credits used by a student to satisfy major requirements may be used for the minor. At the discretion of the minor coordinator, transfer credits may be used to satisfy minor requirements, but no more than 8 credits (or 2 of 5 classes) should be transfer credits.
