The Communication minor complements any major by providing you with the foundations of good and effective communication. If you decide to pursue graduate studies, the Communication minor will also serve you well as a strong framework in any number of fields of study.
Additionally, the skills you will hone as a Communication minor — self-knowledge, interpersonal communication, social interaction, presentation of self, personal discipline, risk-taking, cooperative group effort, sensitivity to others, and more — are important to any career or graduate school application.
