Communication Studies Minor

To declare a minor in communication studies, please email advising with a request. As a communication studies minor, you are not required to attend a declaration session; however, you are more than welcome to join any of the declaration sessions to learn more about the department and opportunities. Upon receipt of the minor request, the departmental advisor will review any potential transfer credit already listed on the APAS and advise accordingly. Please allow up to one week for review.

Communication Studies BA

To declare a major in communication studies, you must attend a major declaration session. Sessions are scheduled for 45 minutes, and students are expected to RSVP. Please send an RSVP email to advising. In your email, include your full name, student ID #, and the session you plan to attend. 

After attending a major declaration session, the advising office will submit your declaration information to the college for approval. The full major approval process usually takes about a week.

If you are interested in hearing more about this major, these sessions can be very helpful.
