Minor Requirements

Communication Studies, Minor

The Communication Studies minor pairs well with a number of different majors since it introduces students to the basics of human communication.  

Students seeking a minor in Communication Studies are required to take 18 hours of CMS classes, including:

  • Either CMS 111 (Public Speaking) or CMS 320 (Professional Communication), but not both.
  • CMS 311 (Persuasion)--offered only in Fall semesters
  • 12 additional hours of CMS electives

**Note that no more than 6 hours of 492 will count towards the minor.
