Minors and Certificates

Many departments have designed academic minors for the convenience of undergraduate students. A minor is a structured group of courses that leads to considerable knowledge and understanding of a subject, although with less depth than a major. Some students choose to complement their major program with a minor in a related field or even in an entirely different field of interest. Students interested in pursuing an academic minor should contact their advising office.

Please note that undergraduate students can only complete a minor in addition to and as a complement to a major. The University does not award stand-alone minors. The College of Communication and Information offers the following minors and certificates.

Minor in Communication
