Students pursuing the minor take three courses in media studies, politics, or related courses at NU-Q and three courses in the fields of politics, media, or related courses at GU-Q.

E-Portfolio & Final Project

As the final part of the minor program, students complete a portfolio that documents course and extracurricular work, as well as a reflective essay and oral presentation.
