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 Organizational Communication minor means more than just being an effective speaker. Organization communication teaches students how to be effective speakers, inspiring leaders, and problem solvers. Effective organizational communication is a necessary component of business and society because it enables people to identify challenges and find solutions that benefit the team, the business, the community, and the world.
