International Communications Minor

Katalin Lustyik, Associate Professor and Minor Coordinator

The minor in international communications gives students from a variety of disciplines a broad knowledge of international communication theory and practice. It also provides knowledge of the global flow of information. Students have opportunities to relate theories and practices of international communication to their own disciplines.

Television-radio majors with a minor in international communications will have the course TVR 12400 waived as a requirement for the minor, since that course is required for the major. Students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 in order to apply for this minor, but this minimum does not guarantee acceptance.
