This program is offered by the School of Communications/Communications and Journalism Department, and is only available at the St. Louis home campus.

For information on the general requirements for a minor, see Minor under the Academic Policies and Information section of this catalog.

  • 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.
