The minor in journalism is a rigorous preparation for a career in print media--whether
traditional or digital--that culminates in workshop style copy-editing courses and
internships. Its goal is to produce students skilled in effective journalistic writing
and editing, yet the journalism minor is more than simply vocational; it also aims
to provide an historical knowledge and a sociological understanding of one of the
shaping forces of our culture.
The minor consists of the JOUR 204-205 sequence along with three more classes from
the following: COMM 225;
305; JOUR 201,
PSCI/COMM 308. Students who wish to minor in Journalism should
contact the chair of the English department.
