The minor in communication and rhetorical studies serves as an excellent complement to almost any major.
Leadership skills are inherently tied to your ability to communicate effectively in a variety of situations, including formal presentations, meetings, the media, and informal conversations.
The undergraduate minor in rhetoric and public advocacy is an interdisciplinary program supported by the Department of Communication and Rhetorical Studies as well as the Writing Program in the College of Arts and Sciences and the program for the advancement of research on conflict and collaboration in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
The minor in visual culture exploits one of the unique strengths of Syracuse University: a world-class arts school in the midst of a research institution. The minor provides you with the critical skills necessary to address the evolving intersection of art, design, and communication in a variety of contexts including the art world, advertising, fashion, politics, and popular culture.
