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.

A Mass Communication minor equips students to work in a variety of fields. A Mass Communication minor helps the business owner get his message to customers and clients. It helps the scientist explain complicated concepts. This minor also helps students understand the growth and impact of electronic media and how to use it effectively. A Mass Communication minor is a particularly effective complement to a degree in business, advertising, history, political science, or pre-law.
