A minor for our times

The ability to develop ideas and present them through a variety of media is indispensable in our communication-rich society. The interdisciplinary minor in Multimedia Communication prepares students to analyze audiences, frame arguments, express themselves clearly in the written and spoken word, understand basic principles of visual design, gather and edit audio and video, and use web-based software to publish their work. Students take courses from the domains of visual communication (Art, Communication &Journalism), written communication (Communication &Journalism, English) and computer programing (Computer Science). The minor is suitable for students who would benefit from the ability to communicate information from their disciplines to a variety of audiences.

Students must complete a total of 24 credits for the minor. Courses counted in the core cannot be used to fulfill requirements in elective credit domains. Because the minor is designed to broaden students' knowledge and skills in multimedia communication no more than nine credits in the prefix of a student's major may be counted toward the minor.

The required core courses are Computer Graphics, Multimedia Communication, and Fundamentals of Web Page Design, one English course, and four additional electives selected from options in art, CJ, computer science, and English.

See the online catalog for detailed minor requirements and course descriptions.
