Minor in Arts and Communications

The LIU Global minor in Arts and Communications equips students with the skills and knowledge fundamental for communication. Core courses orient students to the basics of strategic communication and selective contemporary media platforms. Electives broaden students’ understanding of fine art and popular genres from around the world which they can incorporate into communication strategies. Students will be able to effectively integrate aesthetic traditions and various media strategies to work effectively in the world’s increasingly integrated communication networks.  Students can complete one or more minors at LIU Global.  Each minor requires the completion of a minimum of 15 credits from the approved courses numbered over 100.
