The S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications oversees this minor.
The goal of this minor is to permit students to examine how the process of public communications affects society. Students will learn how the various media, including newspapers, magazines, books, radio, television, film, advertising, public relations, photography, graphics, online journalism, social media, and new media influence specific audiences and shape society in the United States and globally.
This minor is intended for Syracuse University students who are not enrolled in the School of Public Communications. Students choosing this minor should have an interest in learning more about the social, political, economic, ethical, and legal effects of public communications on their lives as citizens, professionals, and leaders in our society.
Applicants are admitted on a space-available basis depending upon cumulative GPA. To be eligible, a student must have completed 30 credits at Syracuse University in courses graded A-F and must submit an application to the Newhouse Advising Office (316 N3). Students must declare the public communications minor no later than the first semester of their junior year.
