Or, they may choose to pursue an area of interest completely outside their major. For example, a Communications major may choose to minor in Public Relations to supplement their major.
Courses a student might take include Reporting and Writing for the Media, Public Relations Media Programming, or Principles of Advertising and Public Relations.
