The minor in Organizational Communication provides a 15-credit intensive study of
organizational concepts and ideas. Since most of the courses in the minor will be
part of MTSU's Experiential Learning Program, the minor is an excellent choice for
students who want to graduate with the EXL designation (must also complete EXL 4000
for 1 credit hour).
By promoting the process of organizational understanding through personal development and application in an intentional and structured way, the Organizational Communication minor serves students' needs by allowing them to gain hands on appreciation of organizational theories and practices. The Organizational Communication minor is intended to support/enhance numerous degree programs across campus whose graduates intend to enter organizational life.
