Communication Arts Minor

The minor in communication arts provides students with a knowledge base that approximates the overall range of courses included in the communication arts major, but also gives students the opportunity to select several courses that are of special interest to them or directly complement their major field of study or enhance their professional interests.

The communication arts minor requires completion of five courses (20 credits), according to the requirements below. An overall average of 2.0 in minor courses is required, with no individual grade lower than a C-. Students should work with their major advisers to ensure that any prerequisites for 500-level courses have been met, or that permission to enter the course has been granted by the appropriate course instructor. Courses used to satisfy Discovery Program requirements may also be used to satisfy CA minor requirements.

I. Breadth Courses
Select any two courses, as long as they are NOT from the same category.

Category A
CMN 457, Introduction to Interpersonal Communication

Category B
CMN 455, Introduction to Media Studies
CA 502, Image and Sound

Category C
CMN 456, Propaganda and Persuasion
CA 450, Introduction to Public Speaking 

II. Depth Courses
Select any three 500-level CA courses, except CA 501.

Note: Students who use CA 502 as a “breadth” course may not use it as a “depth” course.
