School of Communication Minors

Considering a minor?

Minors must be outside of your major and concentration. Up to two courses which have been prescribed by your major into your General Education requirements may be counted towards a minor. The minimum number of credits for a minor is 18. Core requirements, as designated by the Endicott College Catalog, and free electives may be used to satisfy the minor requirements.

Double Minors Policy

You may have two minors. In order to complete a second minor, courses used to fulfill the requirements of the first minor may not be used to meet the requirements of the second minor. Depending upon the major, you may not be able to complete the requirements of the minors within four years or within the minimum number of credits for your degree.
