Minor in Rhetoric

Are you interested in how language works? Do you enjoy breaking down sentences and exploring the mechanics of grammar? If so, a rhetoric minor might be for you. Rhetoric is the study of writing and speaking — of composing strong statements and persuasive arguments. It is grammar and logic. It is also people and the words we use to communicate with one another. You use rhetoric every day, so why not take that understanding to the next level? You'll be glad you did.
