International Communication Minor

The International Communication Minor (ICM) provides a theoretical and practical education in international and intercultural communication and media. This program allows students to develop sought-after competencies in cultural sensitivity and intercultural communication skills by encouraging students to reflect on their own cultural lenses. Students participating in the minor will be exposed to multiple international perspectives through internationally- and interculturally-oriented courses offered on Temple's domestic campuses and may be supplemented with study abroad coursework.

This program is restricted to students outside the Lew Klein College of Media and Communication only.

To earn the International Communication Minor transcript notation, a student must successfully complete a total of 18-20 credits of International / Intercultural studies courses. Each course that fulfills a requirement for the minor must be passed with a C- or better.
