Visual Communication and Culture Minor


Students may earn a minor in Visual Communication and Culture (VCC) by taking 18 hours in classes approved by the VCC Coordinator that align with the underlying philosophy of the minor. Three of the hours must include Introduction to Visual Communication and Culture (JMC 3700). The remaining 15 credits will come from both within the School of Communication (at least six credits/two classes) and outside the school (at least six credits/two classes). Nine of the total hours in the minor must be at the 3000-4000 level.  

Courses may not be used for both the VCC minor and other major or minor programs, without approval from both VCC and major advisors. For students who are majoring in the School of Communication, courses may be used for the VCC minor and a student’s general education requirements. School of Communication classes that journalism and media communication majors apply toward the VCC minor must come from communication studies. School of Communication classes that communication studies majors apply toward the minor must come from journalism and media communication. All courses in the minor must be completed with a grade of “C” or higher.
