Program of Study

The Minor in Critical Intercultural Communication emphasizes the dialectical relationships among the foundational concepts of communication, culture, context, and power. Students will take courses emphasizing theories and paradigms of cultural and intercultural communication and the role that intercultural communication plays in the development of public policy, in mediated systems, and in historical, social, and political discourse. The cultural diversity within and outside of the United States and its implications, the global interdependencies of nations and media systems, and potentialities for conflict, necessitate individuals who can communicate effectively across cultural and national boundaries.

Restrictions in the Minor

All courses applied to the minor must be completed with a grade of C (2.0) or better. Up to three units of credits in COMM 499A , COMM 499B , COMM 499C  may be applied toward the minor.  A course may also be petitioned for acceptance through the Critical Intercultural Communication advisors, provided that course content addresses the foundational concepts of Critical Intercultural Communication.

At least nine (9) units of study must be unique to the minor (i.e. may not be counted towards other major or minor requirements).

Total (18 Units)
