13-Credit Minor in Professional Communications

Program Description: 13-Credit Minor in Professional Communications

The Interdisciplinary Minor in Professional Communications provides students with the opportunity to develop high-level skills in multimedia communications. These professional communications skills are increasingly and urgently required by businesses, public sector and non-governmental organizations, and in the fields of healthcare and science. A range of relevant courses enables students to hone their skills in professional writing, using both traditional formats and new media platforms, and to prepare and deliver in-person and web-based presentations. The 13-credit Minor is designed for students majoring in various departments within the Schools of Arts and Humanities, Social and Natural Sciences, and Nursing and Health Sciences. These majors include but are not limited to English, Multimedia Journalism, Computer Graphics and Imaging, Business Administration, Health Services Education and Promotion, Health Services Administration, and Nursing. Students from any department seeking to burnish their professional writing and presentation skills for the twenty-first-century marketplace will find the Minor in Professional Communications an invaluable complement to their chosen major.
