The focus of the Political Communication minor is on the electoral process, political rhetoric, and the role of media in political life. It is intended to address the interests and needs of students considering careers in the political sphere, either as candidates, employees, volunteers, or reporters in political organizations and campaigns.

The minor will appeal to students who are interested in political communication, which may compliment a major in sociology, English, business, health disciplines, and the sciences.
