Communication Design Minor

The mission of the Communication Design Minor is to enable learners to gain the communication design thinking, knowledge, and skills that will enhance their core area of study. Learners grow these competencies through exercises, projects, and learning experiences designed to develop practical, analytical, creative, emotional, and social intelligences. Those who complete the program are prepared to use their skills to develop and produce visual outcomes that communicate clearly, activating conceptual messaging and detailed aesthetic.

A minimum overall 2.00 GPA is required for successful completion of the minor. All courses must be taken for a grade (not credit/no-credit).
