The Human Interaction Minor supplements Oregon Tech technical and applied science degrees and provides advanced training in interaction skills. The minor offers courses in the analysis and practice of human interaction in a variety of contexts. The minor focuses on helping students to gain competency in building relationships, dealing with difference and managing conflict. Students who have performed well in general education communication courses are encouraged to enroll in this minor. For further information on enrollment, contact the Communication Department curriculum coordinator.
The Human Interaction minor enhances students’ employability and career flexibility. Employers in many industries seek employees who demonstrate competent interaction on multi‐disciplinary teams, communicate in many (including international) contexts, understand and resolve conflict in the workplace and create effective communication in diverse settings.
