Students who enroll in a communication minor have the flexibility of structuring their pathway of five courses to explore the ways in which various forms of communication constitute, maintain and transform social life. The program trains students to understand, adapt to and participate in social change. We offer courses in media studies, rhetoric and face-to-face interaction. We'll encourage you to "learn how to learn,” to become clear and precise writers, and to develop your abilities to think — to describe, analyze, critique, explore, integrate, synthesize and create ideas. The department's faculty members believe that these are the skills and abilities of a strong liberal arts education that will be the most useful resources in students' professional, civic and personal lives after leaving UNH.
The contact for the communication minor is the department's academic adviser, Andrew Sharp.
