Communication Minor

The Communication minor offers students the opportunity to develop practical communication skills. 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 two foundational Communication courses and four courses focusing on either communication, events management, or public relations. 

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

  • understand the development, current state, and emerging trends of media and their audiences;
  • use a variety of media forms to create communication content for specific audiences, purposes, contents, and contexts; and
  • accomplish goals with a critical awareness of communication practices.
