Minor in Arts and Communications, LIU Global

The LIU Global minor in Arts and Communications equips students with the skills and knowledge fundamental to the visual communication. Core courses orient students to the basics of strategic communication and a selection of contemporary media platforms.  Electives broaden students’ understanding of fine art and popular genres from around the world. Through study and experience of various media markets and aesthetic traditions, students are equipped to work effectively in the world’s increasingly integrated visual environment.  

In order to meet the 15-credit requirement for the Arts and Communications minor, students complete:

  • At least three courses from Category A (at least 9 credits)
