What can you do with a minor in Rhetoric and Composition? A lot!
Our roots go all the way back to the classical liberal arts. Our more contemporary meaning of “rhetoric” centers on written and spoken communication, rhetorical analysis of how others use language and images, and adaptability to new discourses and their conventions.
A RHET minor can be helpful on the job market because many employers are looking for “soft skills”--“93% of employers believe that critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving skills are more important than a job candidate’s undergraduate field of study.”* Oberlin Rhetoric minors go on to a broad range of educational and professional endeavors, from teaching abroad, to law school, medical research, and journalism.
