Minor Requirements

Minoring in Communication

A minor in Communication Studies must be officially declared. Visit the Communication Studies Office in CF 295 to sign a declaration card and ask for advisement as needed. At least two quarters prior to graduation, plan to see the Communication minor advisor for a minor evaluation. When you submit your Degree Application to the Registrar's Office, you will need to turn in your minor evaluation, along with your major evaluation.
