Many students like to add a Communication minor while pursuing studies in another major. This is often a good idea for students, especially in areas, such as Management, Psychology, Education, Criminal Justice and Nursing, just to name a few.
Why? Because at the heart of all human contact is the need to communicate and communicate effectively. Curry's Communication department offers a myriad of courses involving topics like: "Effective Listening", "Public Speaking", "Career Speech", and so much more.
A Communication minor involves taking a minimum of 15 credits in Communication courses at the 2000/3000 level with at least three credits at the 3000-level.
Students may also pursue courses in fields like Corporate Communication, Relational Communication Radio/Audio Production, Multimedia Journalism, Public Relations, Film, and Television/Digital Video as a minor. Use the courses housed within the concentration in order to complete this type of minor.
If you wish to pursue a minor in Theatre, you should work off of the courses housed in the Theatre concentration. A minimum of 15 credits is required for a Theatre minor.
