Minor in Communication

Put Your Career in High Gear

The Communication minor will be valuable to you regardless of which career you choose; effective communications skills will give you that edge you're looking for.

Curriculum and Program Content

Program Structure and Length

The requirements of the minor are designed to be met within a four-year Baccalaureate program. The Communication Minor will provide 24-28 credits towards the 120 credit minimum required for a UFV Baccalaureate degree, the balance to come from the declared major, plus electives. Of these credits, 12-16 will come from upper-level CMNS courses.

Declaration of Minor

Students may formally declare minors only after they have completed at least thirty credits in their program with a minimum of a 2.00 CGPA on all credits attempted, provided that they have also met the declaration requirements of the subject discipline.
