Minor in Applied Communication
In our world of media and electronics, there is still a significant need for personal, human communication skills that are the building blocks of strong relationships. Students learn the principles of good verbal and nonverbal communication skills in professional and personal environments. The Applied Communication minor is similar to the traditional speech minor, but with updated coursework that would complement many majors.
The Applied Communication minor requires 20 credit hours of Communication coursework. The student who chooses this minor will benefit from additional training in oral communication skills that apply to business, ministry, and public interaction. Students study debate, argumentation, persuasion, group, and corporate communication. The student will have opportunities to participate on the Evangel speech team through the forensics workshop.
