A minor is an optional component of a student’s degree that will be reflected on the student’s transcript. Minors are an excellent way for students to customize their learning experience and craft a degree program that is uniquely theirs. Students can even earn multiple minors to supplement a bachelor's degree. For example, students pursuing a degree in interpersonal communication might find that a minor in sociology is an excellent pairing, while a student pursuing a degree in public administration might add a minor in sustainability issues to help create a cleaner, greener future. And in some cases, employers offer bonuses or higher salaries to employees who have a foreign language minor.
An Interpersonal Communication minor can be an important addition to virtually any degree program. Business majors will find it useful in dealing with clients and co-workers. Education majors will find it helpful in reaching and teaching students. Effective interpersonal communication is a necessary part of like and work in the 21st century. This minor examines communication and relationships between language, thought and interpersonal action, in an effort to improve these communications among people, groups and communities.
An example of the majors this minor compliments:
- History and Geography
- Political Science
- Modern Languages
- International Business
