Majors and Minors
For students interested in careers in cinema and media arts or in public relations, standalone majors are offered that encompass a full range of courses from theory to practice. For students interested in speech communication or journalism, complementary majors are offered that provide opportunity to couple communications-specific study with another discipline. Likely complements include English, history, political science, religious studies, or other areas of particular interest to the student. Minors include cinema and media arts, event planning and management, journalism, public relations, and speech communication. The department also offers speech communication courses for students pursuing a language arts teaching major.
