New Media Communications
Offered on Corvallis campus and via Ecampus.
The Multimedia minor is designed to prepare students for a variety of careers in media and allied fields in which knowledge of and skills in mediated communications are an integral part of professional activity. A Multimedia minor will allow students from across campus to complement their chosen field of study with an understanding of multiple disciplines from a new media perspective. It is possible for students to complete the minor entirely through Ecampus or at the Corvallis campus.
For students majoring in any subject offered at OSU, the minor must include 20 credits not used as part of the student’s major program and all courses for the Multimedia minor must be taken for graded credit.
A total of 32–36 credits is required for the minor, with 12 of these at the upper-division level (300–400).
