Communication Studies Minor

To declare a minor in communication studies, please email advising (commadv@umn.edu) 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.

When the departmental advisor receives your request, they will review any potential transfer credit already listed on your APAS and advise you accordingly. Please allow up to one week for review.
