Coordinators: Directors of Undergraduate Studies in the Departments of English and Communication
This minor alone does not meet secondary licensure requirements in the areas of English or communication studies.
The minor in professional communication offers majors in fields other than communication studies and English the opportunity to develop communication skills that are valued in the typical workplace environment. Courses focus on the theory and practice of composition and design of both electronic and paper-based professional documents, and on the theory and practice of mediated and face to face interaction. The minor is recommended to students in both technical and non-technical fields.
Six or more semester hours in the minor must be taken at NIU.
