College of Communication and Information

About This Program

The Media Advocacy minor prepares students to explore advocacy as both a professional discipline and an act of engaged citizenship by equipping them with theoretical and applied approaches for achieving meaningful social, political and cultural change through the use of media tools and concepts. The minor will deepen student understanding of individual activism, group advocacy and social movements. The required and elective courses will help students understand how to apply story-based strategies to create shared meaning, draw attention to societal issues and organize others to take action. It will also prepare students to understand how media shape individual decision making, public discourse and public opinion.
