Other Minors

To complement a student's major in the Communication Studies Department, students have the option to pursue any minor offered at Cal Poly.  Students who desire a supplemental academic program may consider minoring in an area that best suits their own particular interests. 

Minor certification will vary in the number of required and elective units depending on the department. Students who choose to minor in a discipline outside of Communication Studies should contact the department they are interested in directly to find out the appropriate procedures.
