The Nonprofit and Public Affairs Communication minor offers students the opportunity to develop practical communication skills specific to social services, arts, culture, and governmental entities. This minor complements skills Columbia students develop in many majors (e.g. Fashion Studies, Business and Entrepreneurship, Cinema and Television Arts, Dance, Theatre, Design, Photography, Cultural Studies). It includes both foundational Communication courses and courses specific to nonprofit and public affairs organizations.

As a result of successfully completing program requirements, students should be able to:

  • understand the development, current state, and emerging trends of nonprofit and public affairs media and their audiences;
  • use a variety of media forms to create communication content for specific audiences of nonprofit and public affairs audiences;
  • accomplish goals with a critical awareness of communication best practices in the nonprofit and public affairs sectors;  
  • and gain awareness and understanding of career pathways into nonprofit and public affairs career pathways
