Requirements for the Minor in Communication

The minor in communication is available to students pursuing any other major at USF. The minor in communication requires a minimum of 18 hours of departmental coursework, including:

  • SPC 2608 -- Public Speaking (3)
  • COM 2000 -- Introduction to Communication (3)

The other 12 hours may be selected from among departmental offerings and must include a minimum of 6 hours at the 3000-level or higher. A grade below "C-" will not be counted toward a communication minor. Courses may not be taken S/U where a grade option exists.

The courses that do not have any restrictions on registration are SPC2608, COM2000, ORI2000, SPC2541, SPC3301, COM4030, COM4710, SPC3710, SPC4201, and SPC4714.  If you would like to take any other courses in the department and have the pre requisite completed you can email Advisor CommunicationAdvise@usf.edu with your U number and the CRN for the course you would like to register in and she will override the major restriction.
