Minor in Communication Studies

 

MINOR IN COMMUNICATION STUDIES
(revised with effect from AY2017/2018)
The Minor in Communication Studies is open to all students in NTU except students from the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (WKWSCI). 
ACADEMIC REQUIREMENT

Students must fulfill at least 15AUs to be awarded the minor. 
To be awarded a Minor in Communication Studies, students must complete two compulsory courses (6AUs), and three electives (minimum 9AUs) from the three broad specialisations of Broadcast and Cinema Studies, Communication Research and Information Analytics, and Advertising and Public Relations.  The courses for Minor in Communication Studies are read as Unrestricted Electives (UE).
The revised curriculum for the Minor in Communication Studies will be applicable for non-WKW students who take up the minor in AY2017/2018 Semester 1.  Students who are currently pursuing the Minor and have completed some of the minor courses have the option to switch to the revised curriculum to fulfil their Minor. For those who wish to fulfill their Minor by following through the existing Minor curriculum, we will support the students on this.
For current students who have already taken CS8100 Fundamentals of Communication Studies as a compulsory course for their Minor before AY2017/2018, we will accept that the student has fulfilled one of the compulsory course CS0201 Foundations of Communication Studies.
