Minors in Communications, Cinema Studies and Video Game Design

Complement your degree with a minor in communications.

Communications Minor

A minor in communications is an excellent way to enhance any major. An ability to articulate ideas and express them clearly is one of the most sought-after professional skills.

In consultation with an adviser, students work out a course of study most suitable to individual needs and interests. Requirements for the minor in communications are flexible, allowing the student to plan an individualized program with a focus on journalism, media studies or production to enhance your options for careers or graduate study.

Cinema Studies Minor

The Cinema Studies minor provides students with an in-depth exposure to film. It engages students in the analysis of the aesthetics and themes embedded in movies. World and historic films as well as contemporary media, including original series, will be studied. Besides the obvious compatibility with many majors including English and Education, a minor in Cinema Studies will balance the more vocationally oriented offerings in many of today’s majors. It will provide a classic, humanistic educational component in which students evolve their own perspective on the world through engagement with great cinematic art.
