The Minor in Journalism

The journalism minor emphasizes knowledge and exposure to basic skills for students who seek an understanding of broadcast, online and print media but who are not necessarily planning careers in journalism or intending to major in journalism. Courses in the minor provide students with a broad introduction to journalistic principles and practices as well as an understanding of the role of journalism in society.

This program will be useful to students who are interested in sharpening their information-gathering and analytical skills, improving the speed and clarity of their writing, and improving their ability to communicate in whatever career they pursue.

Eighteen credits are required for the JRN Minor. Courses must be passed with a C or better or an S in S/U labs to count toward the minor.

Prerequisites are enforced. Subsequent courses are available.

For details, see a journalism adviser for guidance.
