Advertising and Public Relations Minor Requirements

The Advertising and Public Relations minor brings students and faculty together to learn about the background, exploration, and skills needed to engage and persuade today’s audiences. Students gain experience in research, strategic development, and creative execution. The Minor in Advertising and Public Relations is an 18-unit program, with at least 12 upper-division units taken in residence. Students in the minor must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.5 overall, with a “C” or better in the MCJ minor classes. MCJ majors in options other than Advertising and Public Relations will not be required to take MCJ 2 or MCJ 40 as they will have taken those courses already.
