The communication studies minor fits well with any major. Employers are looking for powerful writers and clear speakers; this program helps you build skills in both areas.

Some classes in this minor include:
  • Communication Theory and Practice
  • Intercultural Communication
  • Communication Ethics
  • Public Relations Principles and Writing
  • Technology and Communication
  • Advanced Organizational Communication
My professors helped me prepare for a professional career in media by accurately and realistically sharing their experiences and talking about how to handle faith in a professional context.
