18 credit hours

This program is offered by the School of Communications/Electronic and Photographic Media Department.

For information on general requirements for a minor, see Academic Policies and Procedures.

No course counted toward a major can also count toward a minor. If a student pursues a minor that requires a course also required for the student's major, the student should contact his or her advisor or the department chair to discuss an appropriate substitution.

Students may have a major and a minor within the same department in the School of Communications; they may not major and minor within the same area of emphasis.
