The Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies offers the Minor to foster students’ interdisciplinary, collaborative, experiential, and reflective skills in communication as a relational engagement and commitment to individuals and communities. Developing communications topics with reference to their primary disciplines of study, students will learn to navigate and adapt with confidence within various professional, cross-cultural, and societal domains.
To earn a Minor in Communications and Rhetoric, students must complete a minimum of 30 credits as set out below:
- 3-6 credits of first year English or communications depending on the student’s Major requirements
- Minimum 6 credits of 200- level CORH courses
- Minimum 15 credits of 300- and 400-level CORH courses
